So, what is sorbit?

Sorbit is a naturally occurring sugar alcohol that is commonly used as a sweetener and flavor enhancer in food products. It is a low-calorie sweetener that is 60% as sweet as table sugar but with only about one-third of the calories. Sorbit is also known for its ability to retain moisture, making it a popular ingredient in many baked goods and confections. This versatile ingredient is widely used in the food industry to enhance the flavor, texture, and shelf life of a variety of products, including sugar-free gum, candies, and diet drinks. Sorbit is generally considered safe for consumption and is often used as an alternative to artificial sweeteners.
