Sorbitol: What is it?

Sorbitol is listed as a permitted sweetner by the FDA, and is widely used as a sweetener in diabetic foods. It is a natural sugar alcohol found in fruits such as cherries, etc. It is generally recognized as safe (GRAS), and is approved for use as a safe sugar substitute in a wide range of foods and dietetic products.

Q-Gel® contains a very small amount of Sorbitol, which is added as a Functional Humectant. When compared to the amounts used in hard candy (99%), cough drops (99%) and syrup (5% to 25%) the amount present in Q-Gel® is almost insignificant. Q-Gel® products contain on average between 30 and 60 mg of Sorbitol in the gelatin shell.
