Scottish brewers will soon have to add vitamins to beer to help the fight with alcoholic effects on the brain. The new brewery regulations are being discussed by the Scottish government now. The authorities are likely to pass legislation on the addition of B1 vitamins to alcoholic drinks.
The project is a part of the program developed by the ministers for the reduction of the death rate because of excessive alcohol consumption. The consideration of the problem is in its initial stage so far.
The government of Scotland says that, as soon as the vitamin is added to alcoholic drinks, information about the vitamin content will be printed on labels. Over one million sterling pounds have already been appropriated for the fulfillment of the program designed for the protection of people from harm caused by alcoholic drinks.
Scientists were charged with the collection of proof to demonstrate the importance of the addition of vitamins to beer. Authors of the project hope that the data will be provided by the moment when a final decision on the project is made. It is really important to add the B1 vitamin to alcoholic drinks, because the lack of the vitamin in alcohol abuse has been already proved.
