They are also, in general, less sweet, and are often combined with high-intensity sweeteners. They
are also an active ingredient in chewing gum because they are not broken down by bacteria in the
mouth or metabolized to acids, and thus do not contribute to tooth decay. Maltitol, sorbitol, xylitol,
erythritol, and isomalt are some of the more common types of sugar alcohols or polyols. Sugar
alcohols may be formed under mild reducing conditions from their analogue sugars.

The most common sources of sugar alcohol are fruits and berries. The carbohydrate in these plant
products is altered through a chemical process. These sugar substitutes provide somewhat fewer
calories than table sugar (sucrose), mainly because they are not well absorbed and may even have a
small laxative effect. In several commercial foodstuffs, sugar alcohols are commonly used in place of
table sugar (sucrose), often in combination with high-intensity artificial sweeteners to counter the
low sweetness. Xylitol is perhaps the most popular sugar alcohol due to its similarity to sucrose in
visual appearance and sweetness.
