Sorbitol, also known as glucitol, is a sugar alcohol and is derived from the reduction of glucose. Sorbitol may be present in the
extractives of biomass and in the liquid output streams from biomass pre-treatment
and other conversion processes. It is used extensively as a sweetener and in the medical sector.
