sorbite (GB)

A six valued with glucose (Glucose) related alcohol (also sorbitol, glucitol, glucitol), which occurs in wine in very small quantities. Sorbitol is found in many types of fruit, such as pears, apples, peaches, apricots or plums. In the case of sorbitol intolerance (sorbitol malabsorption, sorbitol tolerance), the utilization of sorbitol in the small intestine is completely or partially abolished and bloating, abdominal pain and diarrhea occur. In larger quantities sorbitol gives the wine more body, which is why it is illegal in some cases wine adulteration has been used. See the different types of alcohol below alcohol,
