Haribo Gummy bears- what is in them

Sugar free haribo gummy bears- is sugarless/sugar free with ingredients that can causes intestinal distress if taken in excess.

The ingredient is Maltitol- a sugar alcohol that is almost as sweet as table sugar but half the calories. Our bodies dont digest it, so it can ferment in the gut causing bloating, loose stools, and tummy rumbling.

Though these products are considered safe to eat, adults who consume these sugar alcohols in large quantities saw an increase in the frequency of bowel movements and they were watery.
