Most toothpastes contain either d‐sorbitol or glycerin, or both, as humectants. Both compounds are about half as sweet as sucrose. This level of sweetness is not as intense as desired by most people when brushing teeth. Therefore, many brands of toothpaste add saccharin, a high‐intensity sweetener, to increase product sweetness to acceptable levels. While this combination provides the required bulk, humectancy and sweetness, the last characteristic suffers from the widely perceived metallic, or…

The results, buttressed by the references cited, support the efficacy of the various applications disclosed for tagatose and suggest its synergism with high-intensity sweeteners also makes it useful in sodas.
Tagatose: A Low Calorie Multifunctional Sweetener
A sugar called tagatose is one of the next things that will be appearing on the horizon for products labelled under the pseudo-hygienic appellations of “light”, “lite”, “low calorie”, “sugar free”,
Handbook of Pharmaceutical Excipients
The Handbook of Pharmaceutical Excipients has been conceived as a systematic, comprehensive resource of information ​ on all of the physical and chemical properties of these materials and the growth of novel forms of delivery has resulted in an increase in the number of excipients being used and suppliers ofexcipients have developed novel coprocessed excipient mixtures and new physical forms to improve their properties.
Aftershave: a truth behind iconic fragrance
Aftershave is an important part of a man's daily lifestyle routine and contains an antiseptic agent such as denatured alcohol, stearate/citrate or witch hazel to prevent infection of cuts, as well as to act as an astringent to reduce skin irritation.
Xylitol and sorbitol: production routes, challenges and opportunities in biorefineries integration


D-tagatose is a bulk sweetener with zero energy determined in rats.
Based on the changes induced in protein and fat gain during the balance period it was calculated that D-tagatose contributed -3 +/- 14% of its heat of combustion to net metabolizable energy, and therefore this ketohexose effectively has a zero energy value.
Sugar substitutes: their energy values, bulk characteristics, and potential health benefits.
D-Tagatose, a new candidate sweetener, is nearly as sweet as sucrose and has the bulk of sucrose, yet provides zero available energy, and potential contribution to human diet restriction along with its specific effect in delaying the aging effects of glycosylation is discussed.
Is leptin sensitivity the link between smoking cessation and weight gain?
Leptin concentrations in smokers were significantly lower than in non-smokers, even after adjusting for BMI, waist/hip ratio (WHR) or waist girth, independent of diabetes status.
