Anheuser-Busch and MillerCoors released the ingredients of their Budwesier and Miller Lite products after food blogger Vani Hari posted a petition on demanding to have the major brewers to release information on what is in their beer.

Within 24 hours, her petition received over 43 thousand signatures. Hari was also behind the successful petition that asked Subway to stop using azodicarbonamide in their breads, a chemical that is also used to make yoga mats and soles on shoes.

Not surprisingly, both beer products contain water, barley, malt, yeast and hops. The only difference between the two beers was that one used rice (Budweiser) while the other used corn (Miller).

Even though Anheuser-Busch and MillerCoors were not legally required to release their ingredients, they said they did it for their customers who wanted to know. “We also value transparency and are happy to comply with the request for additional information,” said MillerCoors in a statement.

Anheuser-Busch makes Budweiser, Beck’s, Busch, and Michelob beer and released the recipes on MillerCoors makes Miller Lite, Coors Light and six other brands and a full list of recipes’ can be found on their Facebook page.

Anheuser-Busch is the leading American brewer and holds 47.6 per cent market share of United States beer sales.
