Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What a very good question. There's no need for it to be added to anything, in my opinion. I believe it is added as a sweetener in beer. Someone suggested to me that it is a by-product of the fermentation process, which I'm sure isn't true. It tends to be mass produced beers that take shortcuts with additives that play merry hell with my health.
