So, what is le sorbitol?

Le sorbitol is a sugar alcohol that is commonly used as a sugar substitute in a wide range of food products. It is derived from glucose and has a sweet taste, but it is not metabolized in the same way as sugar, making it a popular option for those who are watching their sugar intake. Le sorbitol is also known for its ability to retain moisture, which makes it a common ingredient in products such as chewing gum, baked goods, and candy. It is often used in low-calorie or sugar-free products as a way to maintain the sweetness without the added calories. Additionally, le sorbitol has been shown to have some potential health benefits, such as aiding in digestion and promoting the growth of healthy gut bacteria.
