We understand your concerns about the small amount of sorbitol present in our butyrate softgel capsules. We would like to assure you that the amount of sorbitol used in our product is very small and has been carefully selected to ensure that the softgels are gastro-resistant and long-lasting. The sorbitol we use is a type of sugar alcohol that is commonly found in many fruits and vegetables and is widely used in the food industry as a natural sweetener.
We also understand that some people sometimes need to follow a low FODMAP diet, which restricts the consumption of certain types of carbohydrates, including sorbitol.
However, the amount of sorbitol in our product is very small and is unlikely to cause any adverse effects, even for those following a low FODMAP diet.
Despite some initial concerns, the positive effects of butyrate on the gut microbiota can help with the objective of these types of restrictive diets. It's, in fact, a positive addition to FODMAP diets, which aim to improve gut barrier function, reduce low-grade inflammation, and restore a balanced functioning bacterial formulation.
