A type of carbohydrate, sorbitol is widely used as an alternative to sugar as it has a lower caloric value. It is present in fruits such as apples, pears, peaches, apricots, prunes, raisins, etc.; and can also be chemically extracted from glucose. Sorbitol is a highly viscous and non-volatile substance and is available in both crystalline and liquid forms. Being a low-calorie sweetener, it is ideal for health-conscious consumers and diabetic patients who look forward to minimise their sugar intake. Unlike sugar, it also has no harmful effects on oral health and does not contribute to tooth decay. Owing to these properties, sorbitol is extensively used in sugar-free culinary preparations like cake, candy, chewing gums and desserts, and is also found in non-food items like toothpaste and mouth-wash.
