- Low calories: Mannitol is only partially absorbed from the small intestinal, meaning part of the ingested substance reaches the large intestine where metabolism yields fewer calories.
- Useful for people with diabetes: Because mannitol is only partially absorbed by the body, it significantly reduces the rise in blood glucose and insulin levels that occur following the ingestion of glucose.
