1．Sorbitol is a sugar substitute. It may be listed under the inactive ingredients listed for some foods and products.
2．It is often used in diet foods (including diet drinks and ice cream), mints, cough syrups, and sugar-free chewing gum.
3．It also occurs naturally in many stone fruits and berries from trees of the genus Sorbus.
4．Sorbitol can be used as a non-stimulant laxative via an oral suspension or enema.
5．Sorbitol is used in bacterial culture media to distinguish the pathogenic Escherichia coli O157:H7 from most other strains of E. coli, as it is usually incapable of fermenting sorbitol, but 93% of known E. coli strains are capable of doing so.
6．Sorbitol is also used in the manufacture of soft gels to store single doses of liquid medicines.
7．Sorbitol often is used in modern cosmetics as a humectant and thickener.
8．Sorbitol often is used in mouthwash and toothpaste. Some transparent gels can be made only with sorbitol, as it has a refractive index sufficiently high for transparent formulations.
9．It is also used frequently in "sugar free" chewing gum.
10．Sorbitol is used as a cryoprotectant additive (mixed with sucrose and sodium polyphosphates) in the manufacture of surimi, a processed fish paste.
11．It is also used as a humectant in some cigarettes.
12．Sorbitol sometimes is used as a sweetener and humectant in cookies and other foods that are not identified as "dietary" items.
14．A mixture of sorbitol and potassium nitrate has found some success as an amateur solid rocket fuel.
15．Sorbitol is identified as a potential key chemical intermediate for production of fuels from biomass resources. Carbohydrate fractions in biomass such as cellulose undergo sequential hydrolysis and hydrogenation in the presence of metal catalysts to produce sorbitol.
16．Complete reduction of sorbitol opens the way to alkanes, such as hexane, which can be used as a biofuel. Hydrogen required for this reaction can be produced by aqueous phase reforming of sorbitol.
17．Sorbitol based polyols are used in the production of polyurethane foam for the construction industry.
