Know how to pour the right way to prevent stomach bloating



A cold mug of beer on a sunny afternoon can make any alcoholic beverage lover weak in the knees. In fact, beers, more precisely craft beers, have their own set of fans in India and the number is only increasing.

In addition to a moderate alcohol content, like any other soft drink, beer has a lot of carbon dioxide (CO2). The CO2, when released from the bottle, creates a spectacular foam in the cup that gives the drink a distinctive visual appeal. Without the foam collar, it’s not really a beer.

However, some people are in the habit of minimizing the foam in the cup by pouring it slowly and low. But is it correct, or more precisely, is it healthy? Well, apparently not.

A Tech Insider video elaborates the point.

According to the video, beer foam can be bad for your belly. As people usually have the habit of chewing chips or nachos with beer, after entering the stomach, salty snacks can cause the beer to foam and break the CO2 inside the stomach. CO2 can cause the belly to bloat.

However, if you pour it like you pour water, the foam will come out breaking up the CO2 in the glass or cup. The beer will upset your stomach less after you drink it with the foam. In the head you can taste the sweetness of the malt and the bitterness of the hops. But it’s going to protect the integrity of that aroma that’s under the foam through every sip, Tech Insider reported.

Now you know why you feel bloated every time you drink a beer. Go ahead and pour it vigorously into the glass/mug or pitcher and don’t be afraid to create a bit of a head. Because it’s really worth it.

BJP set for historic seventh consecutive mandate in Gujarat



BJP looks set to make history when the Gujarat Assembly election results are announced on December 8, as it is set to come to power for a seventh consecutive term in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s home state.

This was revealed by an IANS analysis of the ABP-CVoter Exit Poll with a sample size of 30,000 spread over 182 Assembly seats in Gujarat.

According to the findings, the incumbent BJP, which has already ruled Gujarat continuously for 27 years barring a brief revolt by Shankar Singh Vaghela, is projected to win 128-140 seats in the 182-member Assembly. Despite 27 years of fighting incumbency, the BJP’s vote share is expected to improve slightly from 49.1% in 2017 to 49.4% in this election.

As of 2017, the BJP had won 99 seats, the lowest tally for the party since it first came to power in Gujarat in 1995. The rise in vote share seems a clear indicator of voter support for the party despite the fact that the state faces a number of perplexing problems. problems ranging from unemployment to test skipping and a sudden stall in growing agricultural prosperity.

In 2017, Congress had put up a spirited fight, scaring off the ruling BJP. In this election, exit poll results have shown that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is emerging as a formidable third force in the state with a 15.4 percent vote share. The lion’s share will be borne by Congress, as its vote share is expected to fall from 41.4% in 2017 to 32.5% this time.

The AAP is projected to win between 3 and 11 seats, while Congress is likely to win between 31 and 43 seats, significantly less than the 77 it won in 2017.

If the exit poll numbers are true, the AAP looks poised to emerge as a national political force after its recent electoral success in Punjab.
