So, what is contiene maltitol?

Maltitol is a sugar alcohol that's commonly used as a sugar substitute in many processed foods. With its low glycemic index, it has become a popular ingredient for diabetics and people who are watching their blood sugar levels. Maltitol is often found in sugar-free candies, chocolate, and baked goods because it provides the sweetness of sugar without the calories. While it can cause gastrointestinal discomfort in some individuals if consumed in large amounts, maltitol is generally considered safe for human consumption and may be a good choice for those looking to reduce their sugar intake.
