So, what is d-sorbitol?

D-sorbitol is a sugar alcohol that is commonly used as a sugar substitute in food and pharmaceutical products. It has a sweet taste and is approximately 60% as sweet as table sugar. D-sorbitol is derived from corn syrup and is often used in sugar-free and low-calorie foods because it is not metabolized by the body in the same way as sugar. It is also used as a humectant, which means it helps to keep foods moist and prevents them from drying out. D-sorbitol is a safe and effective alternative to sugar for people who are trying to limit their sugar intake or manage certain medical conditions.
