Sorbitol -Sorbitol is a sugar alcohol, or polyol, that is most commonly found in a variety of fruits and vegetables. Many people have taken a keen interest to it as an alternative to conventional table sugar for two primary reasons. First, it is used by the body in a much slower manner than regular sugar is. This is due in part to its lower glycemic rating. Finally, it has fewer calories per gram, making it desirable for anyone interested in reducing the number of calories in their diet. With a taste that’s similar to sugar, Sorbitol is a smart way to sweeten things up.
