The rate of alcohol consumption has been rising in our community over time and due to the effects of alcohol to the human body most people are advised against it. Most people want to have the taste of these beverages without having to consume the alcohol content. Most companies realized this and have now gone to the production of non alcoholic beverages. In most areas if the beverage has less than 0.5 percent of alcohol content the drink is usually referred to as an alcoholic drink. Most people do not believe that drinks made by a company that also produces alcohol cannot contain alcohol but what they do not know is that the drink is tested and proved not to contain alcohol. There are several types of non alcoholic drinks ranging from sodas to juices to beer to wine. For the case of beer and wine several debates have come up to whether they are alcohol based drinks mainly due to the extraction process. Go here for more information about wines

Non alcoholic wine is manufactured just like any other type of wine but the alcohol is usually extracted later. There are several methods that can be used to remove the alcohol content from wine. The most common method used in alcohol removal is vacuum distillation. In this method, the wine is put in vacuum and change in atmospheric pressure allows the solution to get heated and thus distills off the alcohol. The other method is reverse osmosis. This is a more complex method though efficient. This method was adapted from how water is purified. The solution is passed through a filter which has tiny pores that only water and alcohol is able to pass through. The water alcohol solution is then distilled usingcommon distillation methods and the water which may have other chemicals is then mixed with what remained on the opposite side of the filter. 

Non alcoholic beer may also pass through the same procedure of purification from alcohol depending on the manufacturer. For the case of beer it will take a longer time than that of wine and that is why distillation by heating is more advisable. For this methodto work quickly, the producer should use high quantity of heat so as to save time and resources. It might be more expensive but it is efficient. 

Apart from non alcoholic based drinks, some people tend to suffer from celiac disease which is mainly intolerance to gluten products. Since most beers contain gluten content, taking of normal beer may affect them negatively. In these cases the person is advised to take Gluten free beer. These beers are mainly produced from ingredients that have no or low gluten content. The mostly used ingredients are corn, sorghum, rice and millet. These ingredients combined with fermentation ingredients produce the gluten free beer.

One of the oldest companies that produce non alcoholic drinks are Rochester. Rochester drinks are made by a family based recipe that has been in use for ages. The drinks come in different favors and tastes. These drinks have rapidly gained fame in the society mainly due to its quality.
