Do sugar alchols count
 
Article by Rick Mendosa bout how sugar alchols can in fact affect blood glucose levels

Even the smallest amount of sugar alcohols upset my stomach like CRAZY. Just one piece of sugar free gum can really mess me up. I noticed that if I chew a piece for about 8-10 minutes I am OK. An longer and it is no fun. I avoid sugar alcohol in food altogether.

There seems to be huge variability in this (which the studies have also noted). I can tolerate small amounts but if I make a mistake and buy a high sugar alcohol protein bar, it's bad news. Others can handle more without issue.

I think most products containing sugar alcohols have the warning, "May produce laxative effect".
I ate a bunch of sugar free jelly beans one time and regretted it. I had to drink a bunch of Pepto Bismol afterward.

I think Maltitol is the worst.
Erythritol is easier on the stomach.

Back about 5 years ago when I first started losing weight, I was doing a strict Atkins diet. I spent the first 6 months staying under 40g of carbs per day and becoming very bored with my food - when I finally stumbled upon a store that sold all sorts of neat low carb sweet foods!!

That weekend I sat in front of the TV, very excited to eat my bag of sugar-free jelly beans.

Perhaps I should have only eaten a handfull and not the entire bag... but all I know is that I was up all night, screaming in agony as I ran to the bathroom every 5 minutes. I'm surprised that half of my organs didn't leak out into the toilet in the process.

That was the first and last time I have ever eaten low-carb jellybeans. :-)

Xylitol seems to be the best of the sugar alcohols in my experience. Its the stuff used in a lot of chewing gum and in sugar free jello pudding. I don't get some of the nasty side affects that other sugar alcohols with it. Although on the negative side I just read that its poisonous for dogs to ingest it so don't let your dogs have any of that sugar free pudding.

I've recently started cooking with erytritol, using it in low carb baking. Seems to have no effect on my GI system.

Maltitol was the worst - I was up all night with explosive diarrhea after a candy feast.

Oh, sugar alcohols are so evil to me. Shudder.
