What is Mannitol and where does it come from?
Mannitol is a white, odorless, sweet-tasting powder. Mannitol is a sugar alcohol. It has half the calories of sugar, and is half as sweet. This product is 100% pure. Mannitol is poorly absorbed by the body, so it does not raise insulin levels as much as sugar. It does not promote tooth decay. Mannitol and sorbitol are isomers, substances with the same chemical formula, but a different shape.

Mannitol is also known as the following:
