Sorbitol is a new kind of sweetener made from purified glucose as material via hydrogenation refining, concentrating. When it was absorbed by human body, it spreads slowly and then oxidizes to fructose, and takes part in fructose metabolization. It doesn't affect blood sugar and uric sugar. Hence, it can be used as sweetener for diabetics. With high-moisture-tatiblizing, acid-resisitance and non-ferment nature, it can be used as sweetener and monisturizer. The sweet intensity contained in sorbitol is lower than that in sucrose, and it can`t be utilized by some bacteria.
It can be widely used in food, leather, cosmetic, paper making, textile, plastic, toothpaste and rubber etc.
Sorbitol is commonly used as a sweetener or sugar substitute in many diet foods. It is also used as sweetener in toothpaste, mouthwash, chewing gum, and cold medicine. Sorbitol is an effective, safe and cost-effective treatment for constipation according to a study of patients at a Veterans Administration hospital in Bedford, Massachusetts, published in the May-June 2005 issue of the "Journal of the American Medical Directors Association. " In fact, sorbitol is the active ingredient in prunes that makes them an effective home remedy for constipation. Sorbitol is also used in the treatment of high potassium levels in the blood, although research in the May 2009 "Southern Medical Journal" suggests this may be damaging to the digestive system.
Taking too much sorbitol, especially in the treatment of constipation, may lead to intestinal discomfort and diarrhea and possibly a trigger for irritable bowel syndrome, according to a study in the October 2009 issue of "Current Gastroenterology Reports. " Since this is commonly used in the elderly, the dosage must be carefully monitored to prevent any effects of sorbitol overdose. In addition, research in the June 2009 issue of "Urology Research" showed that ingestion of sorbitol may increase the concentration of oxalate in the urine, a contributor to kidney stone formation.
