London: Ever thought why drinking white wine leaves some women upset and depressed at times?

Experts suggest it could be due to its ingredients as the white wine contains more sulphites than the red wine.

Sulphites have been linked with "drinking blues" and depression as well as a host of other ailments from allergies to headaches.

While sulphites are naturally found in grapes, small amounts of sulphur are added prior to fermentation, as a preservative, to keep the freshness and remove unwanted yeasts and bacteria, Daily Mail reported.

White wine also contains up to 10 times more sugar than red, according to Britain's Food Standards Agency.

"Women also react more quickly to alcohol," found Sarah Jarvis, the medical adviser to the charity Drinkaware, adding that this may be the reason behind women tending to suffer worse hangovers.

According to researchers at the University of Missouri - Columbia, not only did women turn drunk faster, but their hangover symptoms were more severe -- even though they drank the same amount as men did.
