It is obtained by reduction of glucose changing the aldehyde group to an additional hydroxyl group hence the name sugar alcohol. Sorbitol is a sugar substitute often used in diet foods (including diet drinks and ice cream) and sugar-free chewing gum. It also occurs naturally in many stone fruits and berries from trees of the genus Sorbus[1]. Sorbitol is also referred to as a nutritive sweetener because it provides dietary energy: 2.6 kilocalories (11 kilojoules) per gram versus the average 4 kilocalories (17 kilojoules). Medical importance Sorbitol is used in bacterial culture media to distinguish Escherichia_coli_O157_H7 from most other strains of E Coli. In some human enzymes deficiencies, sorbitol excess arises and can cause damage to the body, although in individuals without certain genetic mutations, it is normal part in the chain of carbohydrate metabolism. An example of such a disease is galactosaemia. In diabetes mellitus, the enzyme is not present in sufficient quantities in some tissue, such as the lens of the eye. Consequently, sorbitol can build up causing cataracts. Application: Sorbitol is a kind of non-sugar sweetener made from high quality dextrose via hydrogenation and refining. It is mainly used for the materials of VC in medicine and materials of surfactant in light industry. It also can be used in toothpaste, cigarette and cosmetics as the substitute of glycerin. In the food industry, sorbitol is used as sweetener, especially suitable for the food of diabetics; It also can lengthen the storage term of some food. In chemical industry, sorbitol rosin ester is used as the materials of common construction coating. Due to plastifying and humectants properties, sorbitol is widely used in tooth pastes and other oral hygiene formulations.
