So, what is sorbitol et glycérol?

Sorbitol and glycerol are two food ingredients commonly used as sweeteners and humectants in various food products. Sorbitol is a sugar alcohol that is often derived from corn syrup, while glycerol is a colorless, odorless liquid that can be obtained from animal or vegetable fats. When combined, these two ingredients provide a unique blend of sweetness and moisture retention, making them ideal for use in foods such as baked goods, confections, and dairy products. Additionally, both sorbitol and glycerol are known to have a low glycemic index, making them a popular choice for individuals seeking low-calorie or diabetic-friendly foods.
