Study shows maltitol has good digestive tolerance
Maltitol is better tolerated then previously reported, and be used as a sugar replacer in a wide range of food products - according to recent research. The study, recently published in the International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition, suggests maltitol can be considered well tolerated by children at up to 15 g/day and could be used to create new sugar free confectionary and food products. The study reports on small statistical differences in digestive comfort between maltitol and sucrose control. A polyol, maltitol is a reduced calorie bulk sweetener with sugar-like taste and sweetness. Its stability, high sweetness, and structure make it suitable for a variety of reduced-calorie, reduced-fat and sugar-free foods.
