TOL and behold what are Sugar Alcohols?
Thanks for the helpful informatuib
Sugar keeps being renamed. And that hurts those that are really trying. Good article
I'd strongly recommend trying a tiny amount first to see how you react. A long time ago I got a chocolate pie at a store that was sweetened with malitol and sorbitol. The three of us here at home each had a piece, and I seemed okay, but the other two had a severe case of diarrhea, including my elderly mother who was greatly weakened by it. It was a little scary for her for awhile. I gather some people are EXTREMELY sensitive to these sweeteners.
VERY INTERESTING ARTICLE. THANK YOU.
Great article. Very helpful. Thanks so much!!
I am an optimist.
It does not seem too much use being anything else.

I really want to stay away from all artificial sugar. I am addictive to the sweet taste of anything with sugar in it. If I have artificial sugar in candy or soda I believe it will trigger my sugar craving. Once triggered it takes a while to recover for me.
I def have a problem here..read my 1st blog..its short.
