Lactitol is a sugar alcohol derived from lactose, commonly used as a low-calorie sweetener in food products. It provides a similar taste and texture to sugar but with fewer calories and a lower glycemic index, making it suitable for diabetic-friendly and reduced-calorie diets. Additionally, lactitol has prebiotic properties, promoting gut health by supporting beneficial bacteria. It is also used as a laxative due to its osmotic effect in the intestines.
