So, what is manitol?

Mannitol is a natural sugar alcohol that is commonly used as a food ingredient and sweetener. It is a white, crystalline powder that has a sweet taste and is approximately half as sweet as regular sugar. Mannitol is found naturally in fruits and vegetables and is often used as a low-calorie alternative to sugar in a variety of products such as chewing gum, candy, and baked goods. Additionally, mannitol is known for its ability to bind with water molecules, making it a popular ingredient in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and medical devices. Mannitol is safe for consumption and has been approved by the FDA as a food additive.
