What is Maltitol?
Maltitol is a sugar alcohol used as a sugar substitute. It has 75–90% of the sweetness of sucrose and nearly identical properties, except for browning. It is used to replace table sugar because it is half as energetic, does not promote tooth decay, and has a somewhat lesser effect on blood glucose.
Benefits of Maltitol.
• Maltitol allows you to get a sweetness that is close to that of sugar, but with fewer calories.
• It also doesn’t have the unpleasant aftertaste that other sugar substitutes tend to have.
• Maltitol, and other sugar alcohols, also don’t cause cavities or tooth decay.
Maltitol is considered a safe alternative to sugar, but there are some precautions you should be aware of.
After eating maltitol, some people experience stomach pains and gas. It also can act similarly to a laxative and cause diarrhea.
The severity of these side effects depends on how much of it you eat and how your body reacts to it. There aren’t any other major health concerns with using maltitol or other sugar alcohols.
If you have any concerns, before making changes to your diet consult your medical practitioner.
