So, what is maltit?

Maltit, also known as maltitol, is a sugar alcohol commonly used as a low-calorie sweetener and bulking agent in food products. It has about 90% sweetness compared to regular sugar and is often used in sugar-free candies, chewing gum, and baked goods. Maltit is known for its ability to enhance texture and mouthfeel, while also providing a sweet taste without the extra calories. It is a popular choice for individuals looking to reduce their sugar intake or manage their blood sugar levels, as it has a low glycemic index and does not cause significant spikes in blood sugar levels.
