E965

The "I Can't Believe This Has No Sugar" Cookbook by Deborah E. Buhr, Diana Thewlis and David L. Morris The New Sugar Busters by H. Leighton Steward, Morrison Bethea and Sam Andrews

E965(i) and E695(ii) are food additives approved by the EU (European Union). They are used as sweeteners in food and drink products.

The common names for E965(i) and E695(ii) are maltitol and maltitol syrup, respectively.

Maltitol is a sugar alcohol which has a lower calorie content than sugar.

E965 may have a laxative effect and has been known to cause gastric irritation. Unlike sugar, E965 does not promote tooth decay and has less effect on blood glucose levels in the body, making it more suitable for diabetics. This sweetener is generally recognised as a safe additive.

Examples of food and drink products that sometimes include E965(i) and E965(ii):
