Sorbitol, an aa kent as glucitol, is a succar alcohol, which the human body metabolizes slawly. It can be obtained bi reduction o glucose, chyngin the aldehyde group tae a hydroxyl group. Maist sorbitol is made frae corn syrup, but it is an aa found in aiples, pears, peaches, an prunes.[1] It is synthesized bi sorbitol-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, an convertit tae fructose bi succinate dehydrogenase an sorbitol dehydrogenase.[1] Succinate dehydrogenase is an enzyme complex that participates in the citric acid cycle.[1]
