Some foods that are marketed to the low carb community include sugar alcohols as a sweetener. Sugar alcohols are low in calories (or kilojoules) and don’t have much of an effect on insulin levels, therefore sugar alcohols are generally considered to be an acceptable sweetener for people who are on the Keto diet. Some of our data sources do not include sugar alcohols in the nutrition information they provide for branded foods, which impacts net carb calculations.
