According to current legislation, drinks containing up to 0.5% alcohol are permitted to be designated as alcohol-free. With 0.2% alcohol, LIGHT live has even less than this. In fact, foods such as apple juice even contain more alcohol. Ripe bananas also contain alcohol levels that exceed the amounts in LIGHT live. This alcohol content is of course very carefully monitored through our quality control process.

Alcohol-free drinks that contain up to 0.5% vol. alcohol, and can thus be designated as alcohol-free in accordance with German food labelling law (‘Lebensmittelkennzeichnungsverordnung, LMKV’), may still pose a risk to children, pregnant or breastfeeding women and people with a history of alcohol abuse. Please bear this in mind before enjoying alcohol-free drinks.

According to current legislation, drinks containing up to 0.5% alcohol are permitted to be designated as alcohol-free. However, they may still pose a risk to recovering alcoholics because they may be stimulated by other things than the alcohol content itself. We recommend asking your doctor before drinking our products.

The de-alcoholisation process in our cutting-edge facility is very gentle: the substances in the wine largely remain intact so that the aroma can continue to develop. We use fruity, full-bodied, well-balanced and alcohol-free wines from select terroirs as the basis for our LIGHT live products.

Depending on the variety, our non-alcoholic products are then finished with grape must and/or rectified concentrated grape must, as well as select natural flavourings, giving them their unique taste.

Choice wines from select terroirs are used to make LIGHT live products. The alcohol is removed from the basic wine through a special, gentle process. To do this, we use a cutting-edge vacuum distillation system, which is largely able to maintain the complex aroma profile of the wines.

In the vacuum distillation system, the boiling point is lowered and the wine’s natural alcohol evaporates at 35°C. The method is very gentle: the substances in the wine largely remain intact so that the aroma can continue to develop fully.

The residual alcohol content* in LIGHT live is on average approx. 0.2% vol. and is carefully monitored by our quality control team.
