Mannitol is a sugar alcohol, or called polyol. It is widespread in nature, being present in the fruit, leaves and other parts of various plants. Strawberries, celery, onions, pumpkins and mushrooms are particularly good sources. Mannitol is about a half as sweet as sucrose and has a desirable cooling effect. It is a low digestible carbohydrate, and has 1.6 calories per gram, thus it benefits people with diabetes. Mannitol is resistant to metabolism by oral bacteria and does not increase the acidity of the mouth after ingestion, thus it benefits tooth health. While it is used for pharmaceutical purpose, mannitol is also widely used in hard and soft candies, flavored jam and jelly spreads, confections and frostings, chewing gum and cough drops. Excess consumption (more than 20g) mannitol may have a laxative effect.
