No-Hangover Alcoholic Beverages (Deuteria): International Patent Portfolio

Alcoholic beverages have been around for thousands of years. Since man learned to ferment grapes to produce wine, alcoholic beverages from beer to spirits such as whiskey, Scotch, gin, vodka, and bourbon have been consumed and enjoyed for hundreds of years. Liquor is probably the finest example of “too much of a good thing.” While alcoholic beverages are pleasurable to drink, there are some notable downsides – hangovers, cirrhosis of the liver, cancer, and facial flushing.

The culprit is the ethanol that is contained in all alcoholic beverages. It is the cause of the negative aspects of drinking beer, wine, or hard liquors because as ethanol is metabolized by the body, it produces a toxic intermediate metabolite – acetaldehyde – that is the cause of a hangover. This portfolio addresses the negative aspects that ethanol brings to alcoholic beverages by creating Ethanol-D, a version of ethanol in which two of the six hydrogen atoms are replaced with deuterium, a safe and stable isotope of hydrogen. Ethanol-D reduces the negative effects of alcohol by slowing down the formation of acetaldehyde by a factor of as much as 4.5 times! Substantially less acetaldehyde in the bloodstream significantly reduces the negative aspects of an alcoholic beverage that use Ethanal-D in place of conventional ethanol!

Any producer of alcoholic beverages can use currently available technology to remove ethanol from its beverage and replace it with Ethanol-D, and do so without changing the flavor, bouquet, or taste of the beverage.

Patent Portfolio

This portfolio would be a strategic acquisition for any producer of alcoholic beverages that is ready to introduce the first significant advancement in alcoholic beverages since Prohibition was repealed in 1933!
