Maltitol is a sugar substitute and is obtained from corn or wheat. Since this substance is not broken down in the oral cavity, the caries risk is also greatly reduced here. Maltitol can be processed by the body without insulin and, like other sugar alcohols, migrates to the large intestine for breakdown without stressing the pancreas. There are repeated statements on the internet that maltitol raises the blood sugar level. There are no valid studies to back up this statement.
