Sorbitol is a polyhydric (six-carbon) sugar alcohol which occurs naturally in some fruits and plants. Sorbitol is used as a sugar substitute as it has one-third fewer calories with 60 % the sweetening activity of sucrose. As it provides half the sweetness of sucrose with fewer calories, it is widely used as a sweetener. It is produced synthetically from glucose.
