How Safe Are Sugar Alcohols?

Since sugar alcohols have been used for a number of years without a lot of fault, they are officially labeled as safe so long as you do not go overboard with your consumption of them. For people who have problems with their stomach, reducing the amount of sugar alcohols in your diet may be the best way to go. These stomach problems can range from simple bloating, to severe gas, and even diarrhea. It really is not certain how every single person will react to sugar alcohols. Everyone’s body is different and no one person can tell you what kind of side effects every single person’s body might have by ingesting sugar alcohols. Some fear the consumption of sugar alcohols because a lot of manufactures do not really care about the health quality. Most manufacturers like sugar alcohols because they never really loose their sweetness when blended with other ingredients.
