    I know all about the dangers of aspartame, nutrisweat and other artificial sweeteners but I have recently taking a liking to protien bars sweetened with sorbitol. Does anyone know if this is also a no-no?

    I generally use Stevia to sweeten things up a bit.

    I don't really know if Sorbitol is harmful, but I know it does give me diahhrea. It really makes me sick, so I stay away from products with it.

    I have been eating the bars and they have not caused any tummy problems. I am in a constant state of constipation, so a little diarhea once in a while is a welcome thing!
