Sorbitol is a kind of sugar alcohol that occurs naturally in plants and fruits and can also be manufactured synthetically from glucose. It is added in food products and tablets to extend their shelf-life, prevent them from drying and aging, as well as prevent the precipitation of sugar effectively. Due to its non-cariogenic and sweetening properties, sorbitol is used in the production of a wide range of products such as toothpaste, candies, ice-creams, syrups, jams, jellies and beverages. It also works as a laxative by drawing water into the large intestine, improving bowel movement.

It is used as an additive, sweetener and thickening agent in the food industry; as a bodying agent in the textile, paper and pharmaceutical industries; as a feedstock for manufacturing vitamin C tablets; and as a moisturizer in cosmetics and personal care products. Moreover, sorbitol is used in a number of dietary foods and beverages wherein it serves as a low-calorie natural sweetener.
