So, what is szorbit?

Sorbitol, commonly referred to as "szorbit," is a sugar alcohol that occurs naturally in many fruits and vegetables, including apples, pears, and prunes. It is also commercially produced by hydrogenating glucose, making it a popular sweetener in many low-calorie and sugar-free foods. Szorbit has 60% the sweetness of table sugar, making it a viable alternative for those looking to reduce their sugar intake. In addition to its sweetening properties, it also acts as a humectant, meaning it helps retain moisture in baked goods and other products. Szorbit is commonly used in chewing gum, toothpaste, and other oral hygiene products, as it does not promote tooth decay like regular sugar.
