Aim: We aimed to evaluate the gastro-intestinal tolerance to an indigestible bulking sweetener containing sugar alcohol using a double-blind random cross-over study.Method: In order to simulate their usual pattern of consumption, 12 healthy volunteers ingested maltitol or sucrose throughout the day, either occasionally (once a week for each sugar, first period) or regularly (every day for two 9 day periods, second period). In both patterns of consumption, daily sugar doses were increased until… 
Short-term digestive tolerance of different doses of NUTRIOSE®FB, a food dextrin, in adult men
TLDR
NUTRIOSE®FB is a fermentable carbohydrate and is well tolerated up to a dose of 45 g daily, but higher daily dosages may result in flatulence, but does not result in diarrhoea.
Short-term digestive tolerance of chocolate formulated with maltitol in children
TLDR
The results suggest that maltitol was well tolerated in children at 15 g in one intake, and the organoleptic properties of maltitol and sucrose in chocolate were compared.
Gastrointestinal Tolerance of D-Allulose in Healthy and Young Adults. A Non-Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
A GI tolerance test for D-allulose was performed in order to establish its daily acceptable intake level and suggest a maximum single dose and maximum total daily intake of D-Allulose of 0.4 g/kg·BW and 0.9 g/ kg·BW, respectively.
Digestive tolerance and postprandial glycaemic and insulinaemic responses after consumption of dairy desserts containing maltitol and fructo-oligosaccharides in adults
TLDR
This study has shown that maltitol and scFOS can be used jointly when formulating sugar-free foods with the benefit to lower postprandial glycaemic response with only a small and transient increase in non-serious GI symptoms.
Improved postprandial response and feeling of satiety after consumption of low-calorie muffins with maltitol and high-amylose corn starch.
TLDR
LCMs are a product with a very low GI with better postprandial and SRs than PMs and these metabolic properties are useful in normal and overweight persons, however, further research is needed on the effects of this type of products in individuals with impaired glucose tolerance.
Gastrointestinal Tolerance and Glycemic Response of Isomaltooligosaccharides in Healthy Adults
TLDR
Lack of difference in glycemic response, with no impact on breath hydrogen and intestinal tolerance, demonstrates that IMO is digestible and can be used to replace sugars in product formulations.
Evaluation of glycemic and insulinemic responses of maltitol in Indian healthy volunteers
TLDR
Assessing glucose homeostasis including glycemic and insulinemic responses after maltitol consumption in Indians confirmed that the maltitol GR in healthy Indians is low and displays a very low insulinemic response which may be of interest for diabetics in India.
Gastrointestinal Effects of Low-Digestible Carbohydrates
TLDR
A review of published studies reporting gastrointestinal effects of low-digestible carbohydrates evaluated published human feeding studies of fifteen LDCs for associations between gastrointestinal effects and levels of LDC intake, and presents recommendations for LDC consumption and further research.
Comparative Effect of Repeated Ingestion of Difructose Anhydride III and Palatinose on the Induction of Gastrointestinal Symptoms in Humans
TLDR
Repeated ingestion of DFAIII for 12 days was as safe as palatinose ingestion, especially with respect to abdominal symptoms and blood test results, and its high resistance to enterobacterial fermentation in humans was not impaired.
Glycaemia and phosphatemia after oral glucose and maltitol ingestion in subjects from two different race groups: preliminary evidence of inter-race differences in metabolism and possible implications for urinary stone disease
TLDR
The results suggest that enzymes which regulate glycolysis may be less active in B than in W, or expression of renal transcellular Glu transporters may be relatively inhibited in B.

Symptomatic response to varying levels of fructo-oligosaccharides consumed occasionally or regularly.
TLDR
Evaluation of the gastrointestinal tolerance to an indigestible bulking sweetener containing fructo-oligosaccharides found chronic consumption of FOS initiated cautiously with subsequent gradual increase did not improve tolerance, nor reduce breath excretion of hydrogen.
Dose-related gastrointestinal response to the ingestion of either isomalt, lactitol or maltitol in milk chocolate.
TLDR
It is shown that there are significant differences in the reporting of gastrointestinal symptomatology following the consumption of isomalt, lactitol and maltitol incorporated into milk chocolate, however, with all three polyols the incidence and severity of symptom atology was dose dependent.
Tolerance and breath hydrogen excretion following ingestion of maltitol incorporated at two levels into milk chocolate consumed by healthy young adults with and without fasting.
TLDR
It is shown that 30 g maltitol in chocolate causes no significant symptomatology in young adults; however, 40 g caused mild borborygmi and flatus but no increased laxation, and an increased breath H2 response indicates colonic fermentation of this polyol.
Can diarrhea induced by lactulose be reduced by prolonged ingestion of lactulose?
TLDR
It is concluded that changes in colonic function induced by prolonged exposure to a nondiarrheogenic amount of lactulose mitigate the severity of the diarrhea because of the larger dose of lactULose.
Digestion and absorption in the human intestine of three sugar alcohols.
Lactitol , a new hydrogenated lactose derivative : intestinal absorption and laxative threshold in normal human subjects
TLDR
It is indicated that lactitol is not absorbed by the human small intestine, as increasing amounts of lactitol, sorbitol or placebo were administered in two divided doses each day until subjects developed diarrhoea or severe gastrointestinal side effects.
Influence of chronic lactulose ingestion on the colonic metabolism of lactulose in man (an in vivo study).
TLDR
Data clearly show that a chronic load of a nonabsorbable sugar induces changes in colonic bacterial metabolic pathways resulting in a better efficiency of the flora to digest the carbohydrate.
Digestion and absorption of sorbitol, maltitol and isomalt from the small bowel. A study in ileostomy subjects.
TLDR
The results indicate that sorbitol, maltitol and isomalt are rather extensively absorbed, but the digestibility of the other nutrients is also reduced, due to the osmotic load caused by the polyols in the small intestine.
Dental and metabolic effects of lactitol in the diet of laboratory rats
TLDR
The results confirm the low cariogenic potential of lactitol, but show metabolic differences compared with sucrose.
