Makes sense. A lot of low carb resources say that you can deduct at least half of sugar alcohols from the carb total.
Sugar alcohols are subtances literally between sugar and alcohol. They're the sugary things that gives 5 Gum its oomph. They affect some people as if they WERE sugar, but some people get no reaction from them at all. This is definitely a case where you would need to test its effect out on yourself.
They're also known to cause some intestinal problems - gas and diarrhea included - especially if you have too much of them at a time.
You definitely don't want to leave anything with sugar alcohol around if you have dogs that might get into them. They're toxic to dogs.
