Your Meal Could Make You Drunk

( — November 26, 2017) Cheyenne, Wyoming — For most nursing moms, having a glass of champagne or rum cream on the rocks is not an option so many may choose to indulge in some alcohol laced dish or flambéed sweet treat. It’s often said that cooking with alcohol is safe to eat since the heat applied burns off most of the alcohol but do you know how much is left in the food and is it enough to be detected in breast milk?

The amount of alcohol a dish retains depends on a number of factors namely the volume used, the method of cooking and the length of time on heat. Generally, the longer a meal is cooked for the less alcohol is retained, however baked items will always evaporate alcohol at a greater rate than braised dishes.

A 2007 study by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Nutrient Data Laboratory charted the percentage of alcohol retention of a range of cooking methods. Of particular interest is the comparative result showing that 85% alcohol remained in meals prepared as braised/stews while items baked with alcohol stirred in only retained 5% – 40% alcohol, based on the cook time variations.

So whether dinning at a friend’s house or eating out at a fancy restaurant where meals aren’t served with labels about their alcohol levels, it’s important to for nursing mothers to test their breast milk for its alcohol content level before letting young ones suckle. 

The PureMilk™ Breast Milk Alcohol Test Strip by HealthyWiser™ is a quick and easy tool created to exam the alcohol level of a mother’s milk supply with 99.9% accuracy within seconds, ensuring it’s safe for consumption. While most other tests only offer negative/positive results, the HealthyWiser™ PureMilk™ Test Strip is based on a graded system to give the most precise readings. 

The ideal blood alcohol content reading for a nursing mother is 0.0% by volume to guarantee alcohol-free breast milk. Caution and delayed nursing should be exercised if a reading is above that. So, with the provided convenience, affordability and peace of mind, HealthyWiser™ PureMilk Breast Milk Alcohol Test Strip is proven to be an invaluable product for nursing moms who wish to sip diligently.
