So, what is sorbitols et glycérol?

Sorbitols et glycérol, commonly used as a sugar substitute, is a blend of two polyols that are naturally occurring in fruits and vegetables. Sorbitol has 60% of the sweetness of sucrose but only half the calories, while glycerol is a clear, odorless, and sweet-tasting liquid used in foods for moisture retention and sweetness. This combination is popular in low-calorie, reduced-sugar, and diabetic-friendly products, as it provides both sweetness and texture without raising blood sugar levels. Sorbitols et glycérol also functions as a humectant, preventing food from drying out and improving shelf life.
