In this article we look at the how many carbs there are in Corona Premier and other nutritional and health aspects of this beer.

We also look at how it compared with other premium light beers and other beers in the Corona range.

[It is also worth noting Corona Premier is a really decent tasting beer – see here for Andy Sparhawk’s review of Corona Premier and taste test vs Corona Light.]

How Much Sugar in Corona Premier?

There is no residual sugar in Corona Premier. Any sugar present through the addition of corn syrup (which makes Corona Premier an adjunct lager) is consumed by the lager yeast during the brewing process.

Is there fat in Corona Premier?

No, there is no fat in Corona Premier!

Is Corona Premier Keto Friendly or Low Carb?

No beer can really be considered to be keto friendly or low carb. However, if you are pursuing a keto diet or want to keep to a low carb dietary regimen, this is a great beer to choose. For starters, it is refreshing with a good taste and decent flavor but just 90 calories per bottle, so you win both ways.

Just remember to keep your intake of beer moderate to keep your carb intake in check.

Is Corona Premier a healthy beer?

Relatively speaking, Corona is a health beer. It is very low in calories – lower even than Corona Light – and has very few carbs. But like all beers it has little nutritional value, contains alcohol (4% ABV alcohol content) and can cause health problems if consumed in excess.
