From Pakistan:

Can I take sorbitol instead of Canderel? Does sorbitol have any side effects?


You may substitute sorbitol for Canderel, but beware of the possible side effect of certain sugar alcohols such as sorbitol. In excessive amounts, they may cause diarrhea or bloating. I would suggest you go slowly with incorporating foods with these sugar alcohols into your meal planning.
