Even though sugar alcohols are made from different types of sugar and starch, they usually have about half the calories. So, they may be helpful in weight management if someone is trying to cut down on calories. They also have a much smaller effect on blood glucose levels so they may help with diabetes management when they replace sugar or starch. (www.diabetes.org)
