Nelson Sorbitol is only about 60% as sweet as sugar. Since it's very slow to be metabolized by the body, sorbitol does not cause insulin levels to increase as much as sugar. Sorbitol also doesn't lead to tooth decay and is used in many sugar-free cough syrups. It is a popular addition to gel toothpastes as it helps add transparency.

Sorbitol is added to soaps, especially transparent glycerin bar soaps. It has moisturizing qualities and may be found in lotions and moisturizing soaps. Sorbitol has been used in cosmetic products for close to a century and is a Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) product by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). CAS NO. 50-70-4

Sorbitol can have a laxative effect and is not recommended for consumption by children and those with sensitive digestion symptoms or a gastro-intestinal condition such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Sorbitol can cause diarrhea, bloating and gas unless it's consumed in small quantities. It may also cause abdominal pain in some cases.

Sorbitol's chemical formula is C6H1406. It may be used in cigarette production as a moisturizing substance as well as a sweetener in some diet drinks. It is also used, along with sucrose, to preserve the freshness of surimi proteins used in producing imitation crab.
