Centrul de Studii despre Bere, Sănătate și Nutriție.
Established in 2012, the Center of Studies on Beer, Health and Nutrition aims to provide to the academic and medical communities scientifically-based information on the effects of moderate beer consumption. To achieve its stated goal, it carries out annual scientific studies by awarding research grants. So far, four studies have been finalized with relevant findings related to the benefits of moderate beer consumption. The Romanian researchers have shown that moderate consumption of beer may have a positive effect on memory, it may diminish the symptoms associated with menopause and that beer has an antioxidant effect. Also, the Romania researchers proved once again that the moderate consumption of beer it’s not related to the so called “beer-belly”.

Consumers are paying closer attention to healthy lifestyles. It is important that they have access to scientific findings about anything that can help them lead healthier lives. Also when it comes to drinking beer. The Dutch Beer Institute was founded in February 2009, precisely to provide that kind of information. It is the principle Dutch research institute where it concerns responsible beer consumption in relation to health. A non-profit organisation, the Institute targets health professionals such as (para) medics, nutritionists and policymakers. On the basis of scientific studies, the Dutch Beer Institute develops (educational) materials on the biomedical, psychosocial and nutritional aspects of a responsible consumption of beer. In addition, the Institute facilitates further research on the health effects of responsible beer consumption, in order to fill in any gaps in what is known on that topic.
