Maltitol (E965) belongs to the sugar alcohols group, and is mainly used in sugar-free and low calorie foods such as chocolate. One reason for its use is the significantly lower calorie content of 2.4kcal /g compared to sucrose (table sugar). Because maltitol is considered to be a nearly indigestible carbohydrate, it also has a laxative and flatulent effect, particularly when consumed in large quantities. The effect is therfore similar to the effect of fructose on those with Fructose Malabsorption. Therefore, Frusano does not offer products containing maltitol.
