    Sugar alcohol is also called mannitol, is made commercially by hydrogenation of glucose and is absorbed very slowly into the bloodstream. It is thought not to require insulin for its metabolism and has the same calorie value as glucose, and nearly the same sweetening effect as well. Mannitol can be obtained by hydrogenation of mannose which occurs in pineapples, olives as well as carrots. Hope that helps.
