Sorbitol, also known as glucitol, is a sugar alcohol, which the human body metabolizes slowly. It can be obtained by reduction of glucose, changing the aldehyde group to a hydroxyl group. Most sorbitol is made from corn syrup, but it is also found in apples, pears, peaches, and prunes.[1] It is synthesized by sorbitol-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, and converted to fructose by succinate dehydrogenase and sorbitol dehydrogenase.[1] Succinate dehydrogenase is an enzyme complex that participates in ...

sorbitol in niquitin gum
My husband has been taking niquitin gum, about twelve daily and has been suffering frequent loose bowel movements. I think this may be due to Surbiton but he doesn't believe me, any advice or confirmation that this could be the cause of the symptoms ## Hello, Lesley! How is your husband doing? And yes, sorbitol can do that, it has actually even been used as a laxative in higher amounts. But in people that chew a lot of sugar free gum that contains it, sorbitol has been known to cause severe diarrhea with rapid weight loss. He should double check with his doctor to ascertain if it is the cause, but there's a very good chance that it is. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## Thanks for your reply. My husband has been chewing a lot of gum lately to combat nicotine withdrawa... ...

Addition of Sorbitol-Mannitol in medications is making me sicker!!!
I am so frustrated with drug companies adding sugar alcohols like sorbitol and mannitol in medicines. I have been taking Prilosec for gastritis for about 10 months. My doctor asked that the pharmacist give me an rx (for gastritis) that does not contain sorbitol. I have been taking the Prilosec for over 1 month and I am still having my symptoms. I just check the ingredients and it contains mannitol which is just like sorbitol. WHY is this allowed in medicine. There are a huge number of people (especially those with irritable bowel syndrome) who are becoming sicker because sorbitol and mannitol causes gastritis issues with them and others like me who get extremely sick (and dehydrated) with just a little bit of this! It is extremely dangerous for young children and the elderly. How can I ... ...
