And dont count on that mega-burger or doner kebab to help soak up those last few beers you shouldnt have downed at the staff Christmas party. The only food compound scientifically proved to help reduce alcohol concentration in your blood is fructose, known also as fruit sugar. Findings from multiple studies around the world have pointed to fruit like apples, pears and watermelon as well as honey and juices or carbonated drinks like cola to be the most effective ways to help increase the breakdown of the alcohol in your bloodstream. Bring on the fruit salad dripping with honey, washed down with a can of Coke. But depending on a swig or two of fruit juice to sober you up is simply impossible, according to the experts the science is too inconclusive. What we do know from the latest research is it takes just five minutes from your first drink to its alcohol registering in your bloodstream. At the other end of the session, your peak BAC occurs 30-90 minutes after your last drink, depending on your food intake as well as several other biological factors. For every standard drink you consume, your BAC rises on average from .02 to .03 in breathalyser terms, the lower count for men and the greater for women. So if you consume three drinks in an hour, your BAC will be heading well over the .05 driving limit.
