What's better for you wine or cider?

Like beer, cider also contains a healthy dose of antioxidants thanks to the apples and apple skin (which contains tannins). It's said that half a pint of cider contains as many antioxidants as a glass of red wine. Again, quite evenly matched.

Why does cider have less alcohol than wine?

Because apples contain less natural sugars than ripe wine grapes, the alcohol content of cider is less than that of a dry wine – a wine where all of the natural sugars have been converted to alcohol. The alcohol content for ciders is generally under 7%, while the alcohol content for most dry wines is between 11%-16%.
