Determination of a Sorbitol Intolerance

Sorbitol Intolerance | Laxiba


As it holds for lactose and fructose intolerance, many people do not know that they suffer from a sorbitol intolerance. One reason for that is that the symptoms are similar to those of a normal gastrointestinal disease.

Symptoms of a sorbitol intolerance are bloating, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Certainly, there are many potential causes for these. Only after visiting a specialist, you will receive a proper diagnosis – after doing several tests for potential triggers. Of course, the symptoms only occur in connection with the consumption of sorbitol-containing foods. Without preparation a self-test where you consume a high amount of sorbitol is of little value. The reason is that you might easily have consumed something of a different trigger and thus the result is unclear – it seems like the stork is bringing the children. In case your doctor does not offer you a breath test for sorbitol, the nutrition navigator shows you how a self-test is done right.


Sorbitol intolerance – What is sorbitol?

Sorbitol tastes sweet and is still ignored by cavity bacteria. Hence, sorbitol is contained in many foods that are sugar-free. Another advantage is that your blood sugar level increases slower than with normal sugar. This is also the reason why it is often used for diabetes products. However, if your body disregards sorbitol, which happens if you have a sorbitol intolerance, your stomach gets into trouble. It is kind of a severe punishment for not „eating up“. Yet, as you cannot willingly influence the sorbitol assimilation of your body, the only help is to reduce your sorbitol consumption.
