UV irradiation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in ices: production of alcohols, quinones, and ethers. (1/1378)

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in water ice were exposed to ultraviolet (UV) radiation under astrophysical conditions, and the products were analyzed by infrared spectroscopy and mass spectrometry. Peripheral carbon atoms were oxidized, producing aromatic alcohols, ketones, and ethers, and reduced, producing partially hydrogenated aromatic hydrocarbons, molecules that account for the interstellar 3.4-micrometer emission feature. These classes of compounds are all present in carbonaceous meteorites. Hydrogen and deuterium atoms exchange readily between the PAHs and the ice, which may explain the deuterium enrichments found in certain meteoritic molecules. This work has important implications for extraterrestrial organics in biogenesis.  (+info)

Alcohol-induced biphasic inhibition of myosin subfragment 1 K-EDTA-ATPase. (2/1378)

Butanol-induced inhibition of K-EDTA-ATPase of myosin subfragment 1 proceeded by biphasic kinetics, consisting of rapid and slow inactivations. The extent of the rapid inactivation, which was estimated by extrapolating the process of slow inactivation to zero time of the incubation period, was saturated with butanol concentration. Recovery of activity by dilution in the rapid phase indicates that the rapid process is reversible. The slow inactivation was concomitant with a partial denaturation of the 50 kDa domain of S1, which was detected by limited tryptic digestion. Other alcohols (methanol, ethanol, propanol and hexanol) also inhibited the K-EDTA-ATPase in the rapid phase. The Ki decreased with an increase in the number of methylene groups of alcohol. When K-EDTA-ATPase activity in the rapid phase was plotted against viscosity, surface tension or dielectric constant, the curves were different for each of the various alcohol solutions. The rapid inactivation appears to be caused by a binding of the alkyl group to S1, rather than by solvent effects. The kinetics of rapid butanol inhibitions indicate that butanol reduces the maximum activity of ATPase but enhances an apparent affinity of S1 with ATP. These indications suggest that alcohol stabilizes S1.KATP intermediate. The rapid K-EDTA-ATPase inhibition was observed at the same alcohol concentration where S1 Mg-ATPase was activated.  (+info)

Microbial oxidation of methane and methanol: isolation of methane-utilizing bacteria and characterization of a facultative methane-utilizing isolate. (3/1378)

A methane-utilizing organism capable of growth both on methane and on more complex organic substrates as a sole source of carbon and energy, has been isolated and studied in detail. Suspensions of methane-grown cells of this organism oxidized C-1 compounds (methane, methanol, formaldehyde, formate); hydrocarbons (ethane, propane); primary alcohols (ethanol, propanol); primary aldehydes (acetaldehyde, propionaldehyde); alkenes (ethylene, propylene); dimethylether; and organic acids (acetate, malate, succinate, isocitrate). Suspensions of methanol-or succinate-grown cells did not oxidize methane, ethane, propane, ethylene, propylene, or dimethylether, suggesting that the enzymatic systems required for oxidation of these substrates are induced only during growth on methane. Extracts of methane-grown cells contained a particulate reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide-dependent methane monooxygenase activity. Oxidation of methanol, formaldehyde, and primary alcohols was catalyzed by a phenazine methosulfate-linked, ammonium ion-requiring methanol dehydrogenase. Oxidation of primary aldehydes was catalyzed by a phenazine methosulfate-linked, ammonium ion-independent aldehyde dehydrogenase. Formate was oxidized by a nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide-specific formate dehydrogenase. Extracts of methane-grown, but not succinate-grown, cells contained the key enzymes of the serine pathway, hydroxypyruvate reductase and malate lyase, indicating that the enzymes of C-1 assimilation are induced only during growth on C-1 compounds. Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase was induced during growth on glucose. Extracts of methane-grown cells contained low levels of enzymes of the tricarboxylic acid cycle, including alpha-keto glutarate dehydrogenase, relative to the levels found during growth on succinate.  (+info)

Inhibition of Bacillus subtilis spore germination by various hydrophobic compounds: demonstration of hydrophobic character of the L-alanine receptor site. (4/1378)

L-Alanine-initiated germination of Bacillus subtilis spores was inhibited by various kinds of hydrophobic compounds. Good correlation of inhibitory effect with hydrophobicity of the compound was demonstrated by using regression analysis in which the hydrophobic character was expressed by the partition coefficient in an octyl alcohol-water system. The correlation coefficient for 20 alcohols was 0.959, and that for 19 miscellaneous compounds was 0.906. Regression lines of the alcohols and other hydrophobic compounds were almost identical, showing that hydrophobic interaction played an important role in inhibition. Diphenylamine was one of the most effective inhibitors examined. n-Octyl, n-nonyl, and n-decyl alcohols were the most effective alcohols. The mode of inhibition by diphenylamine and n-octyl alcohol was a "mixed type" (competitive plus noncompetitive type) with respect to L-alanine; that by D-alanine was competitive inhibition. Sites for diphenylamine, n-octyl alcohol, and D-alanine may have overlapped. Inhibition was reversible by washing; heat resistance, stainability, and germination rate of the washed spores remained unaltered. Thus, we confirmed that the inhibition may occur before the initial trigger reaction of germination and that it may be due to the interaction between a hydrophobic compound and a hydrophobic region closely associated with the L-alanine receptor site on the spore.  (+info)

Total plasmalogens and O-(acylalkylglycerophosphoryl) ethanolamine from labelled hexadecanol and palmitate during hypoxia and anoxia in rat heart. (5/1378)

By the use of the Langendorff technique, surviving isolated rat hearts were perfused with [1-14 C] palmitate, [1-14C] hexadecanol or [1-14C,1-3H] hexadecanol under normal or anoxic conditions. After perfusion for 30min with either precursor, when oxygenated or in an hypoxic condition, or when 1mM-KCN was included in the system, the heart tissues showed no significant chemical changes in their content of total lipids, total phospholipids or total ethanolamine-containing phospholipids. Changes were observed in the ratio of alkyl-to alk-1-enyl-glycerophosphorylethanolamine in the tissue perfused with N2+CO1 plus CN-. A slight increase from 4.0+/-0.3 to 4.9+/-0.2% in alkyl derivatives and a decrease from 11.2+/-0.4 to 9.4+/-0.3% in alk-1-enyl derivatives was observed. The incorporation of the [14C] palmitate and the [14C] hexadecanol into the recovered phospholipids and plasmalogens was severely decreased in the tissues perfused with CN-: in the hypoxic state only a mild inhibition was observed compared with the oxygenated systems. Considerable 3H from [1-14C, 1-3H] hexadecanol was retained (25-35%) in the alk-1-enylether chains of plasmalogens under both the oxygenated conditions and with CN-, suggesting that the same mechanism of incorporation is operational at high or low O2 concentrations. The results are consistent with an O2-dependent, CN-sensitive step in the biosynthesis of plasmalogens in the rat heart.  (+info)

1. Ethanol inhibits inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) expression in C6 glioma cells by an unknown mechanism. Because relatively high concentrations are needed for inhibition in drug-naive cells (IC50 approximately = to 150 mM), suppression due to cytotoxicity is one possible mechanism that has not been ruled out. Therefore, the present study examined the effects of ethanol and other alkanols on C6 glioma cell viability and iNOS activity to better understand the mechanism for inhibition. 2. iNOS expression was induced in cell culture with lipopolysaccharide and phorbol ester treatment. Nitrite accumulation in culture medium, the in vitro conversion of [3H]-L-arginine to [3H]-L-citrulline, and immunoblotting were used to quantify iNOS induction and activity. Trypan blue exclusion, extracellular release of lactate dehydrogenase, and quantity of total cell protein were used as measures of viability. 3. Short chain alkanols, methanol through 1-heptanol, concentration-dependently inhibited nitrite accumulation. Longer chain alkanols, 1-octanol and 1-decanol, did not except at cytotoxic concentrations. Experiments indicated short chain alkanol inhibition was not due to direct actions on iNOS catalytic activity, but that it transpires during iNOS induction. Immunoblots showed reduced iNOS protein levels. 4. Correlation analysis ruled out iNOS inhibition as being due to decreased cell number, total cell protein, or cell viability. In contrast, there was significant correlation with physical measures of lipophilicity. 5. In conclusion, inhibition of iNOS expression by ethanol and other short chain alkanols is not due to cytotoxicity. Instead, the strong correlation with lipophilicity suggests the inhibition derives from an interaction with unknown hydrophobic cellular sites.  (+info)

A low-molecular-mass protein from Methylococcus capsulatus (Bath) is responsible for the regulation of formaldehyde dehydrogenase activity in vitro. (7/1378)

An 8.6 kDa protein, which the authors call a modifin, has been purified from Methylococcus capsulatus (Bath) and has been shown to alter the substrate specificity and kinetics of NAD+-linked formaldehyde dehydrogenase (FDH) isolated from the same organism. Purification methods for both the modifin and FDH are presented which reliably produced pure protein for further analysis. Analysis of the molecular mass and N-terminal sequence of both FDH and the modifin indicate that they are unique proteins and show no similarity to alcohol or aldehyde dehydrogenase enzymes isolated from methylotrophic bacteria. Substrate specificity studies demonstrated that FDH oxidized formaldehyde exclusively in the presence of the modifin; a diverse range of aldehydes and alcohols were oxidized by FDH in the absence of the modifin. No formaldehyde oxidation was detected in the absence of the modifin. Attempts to replace the modifin with glutathione or high concentrations of methanol to stimulate formaldehyde oxidation failed. With acetaldehyde as substrate, FDH showed standard Michaelis-Menten kinetics; interaction of FDH with the modifin using formaldehyde as substrate altered the kinetics of the reaction to sigmoidal. Kinetic analysis during turnover experiments indicated that the FDH may be associated with bound formaldehyde following enzyme isolation and that NAD may also be associated with the enzyme but in a form that is less tightly bound than found with the methanol dehydrogenase from Bacillus methanolicus. Data are presented which indicate that the modifin may play an important role in regulating formaldehyde concentration in vivo.  (+info)

Oxidation of medium-chain acyl-CoA esters by extracts of Aspergillus niger: enzymology and characterization of intermediates by HPLC. (8/1378)

The activities of beta-oxidation enzymes were measured in extracts of glucose- and triolein-grown cells of Aspergillus niger. Growth on triolein stimulated increased enzyme activity, especially for acyl-CoA dehydrogenase. No acyl-CoA oxidase activity was detected. HPLC analysis after incubation of triolein-grown cell extracts with decanoyl-CoA showed that beta-oxidation was limited to one cycle. Octanoyl-CoA accumulated as the decanoyl-CoA was oxidized. Beta-oxidation enzymes in isolated mitochondrial fractions were also studied. The results are discussed in the context of methyl ketone production by fungi.  (+info)

The transformation of various grains, fruits, and vegetables into ethanol or alcohol can only be achieved through fermentation and complete fermentation of yeast is crucial for alcohol production. Active yeast starts the metabolism process within the mixture of water and other ingredients that result in the conversion of sugars into alcohol.. Yeast is classified as micro-organisms from the fungi family. These yeasts are available in a wide range and they contribute greatly in the creation of various alcohols ranging from mild ones such as beer to medium ones such as wine to stronger ones such as vodka. Thus, brewers yeast such as saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast or ale yeast as it is also known is used to ferment beer. Similarly, yeast saccharomyces is used to ferment lager beer. On the other hand wine is fermented using wine yeast while strong distillers yeast such as vodka yeast is used to produce strong spirits such as vodka. Even before the addition of yeast into the mixture, other processes ...
Ethanol or simply alcohol is actually caused by fermentation that involves active yeast mixed with a number of ingredients and during alcohol production fermentation of sugars is vital. After most of these sugars get changed into alcohol subsequently based on the alcohol beverage that one desires to manufacture, alcohol having ideal character, taste, color, and strength can be produced.. All alcohols as well as spirits are produced from starch-rich components and constant processes with the help of enzymes convert this starch straight into sugars before ultimately fermenting them straight into ethanol or simply alcohol, as it is additionally known winery yeast. The primary starch-rich ingredients that are used in the manufacture of alcohols as well as spirits such as beer, rum, wine beverages, vodka, gin, rum, etc, are grains of various kinds, corn, rice, apples, grapes, potatoes, and many more depending on the location where these types of beverages happen to be produced. The key process of ...
There are several vital processes that need to be completed before any type of alcoholic drink is produced but transformation of alcohol sugars is vital for alcohol production. This transformation is bought about by fermentation where these sugars are transformed into alcohol with varying proof levels.. Beer, vodka, wine, whiskey, and rum, among several other heady drinks all fall into the category of alcohols and spirits. There are different types of natural raw materials required to make various alcoholic beverages. These include ingredients that contain lots of starches that can be converted into fermentable sugars such as glucose, fructose, sucrose, etc. These raw materials include corn, cane, barley, rye, wheat, corn, apples, grapes, and many more that have high levels of starch.. For the manufacture of beer, malted barley along with water are firstly mixed together before the mixture is dried and roasted to encourage enzymes including different types of amylase to transform the starch ...

Diffuse reflectance FT-IR spectra of methanol and ethanol on Amberlyst 15 and on a synthesized acidic resin catalyst indicate that alcohol molecules are adsorbed by forming hydrogen bridges with the -SO3H sites of the catalyst and among themselves. Some of the alcohol molecules were found to be strongly chemisorbed by dissociation of one or two hydrogen atoms. Isobutylene was also found to be strongly adsorbed by forming a bridged structure between the adsorbed alcohol molecules and the -SO3H groups. DRIFT spectra verified the presence of adsorbed ether molecules formed as a result of surface reaction and supported a Langmuir-Hinshelwood-type reaction mechanism. ...

Abstract: : Purpose: The physiological barriers of the eye limit drug delivery to the posterior segment of the eye via topical or systemic administration. Intravitreal administration has proven to be safe and effective in the treatment of various vitreoretinal diseases. Elimination of drugs from the vitreous body can be via aqueous drainage or through the retina. Drugs eliminating predominantly through the aqueous pathway have higher half-lives and results in prolonged therapeutic action in the posterior segment of the eye. Therefore it is important to study the effect of physicochemical properties of the drugs on their elimination characteristics from the vitreous. The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of lipophilicity on vitreous disposition of short-chain aliphatic alcohols. Methods: Radiolabeled (C14) methanol, 1-propanol, 1-pentanol, 1-hexanol and 1-heptanol with log Pc values ranging from -0.77 to 2.7 were studied. New Zealand albino rabbits weighing 2-2.5 kg were used. ...
Ethyl glucuronide and ethyl sulfate are metabolites of ethanol (alcohol) that may be present in urine after ingestion of, or exposure to, drinks, foods, medication or other products containing ethyl alcohol. Incidental exposure to alcohol-containing products such as mouthwash or hand sanitizer have also been shown to produce positive alcohol metabolites test results. LC-MS/MS testing detects EtG and EtS regardless of the source. Therefore, we encourage you to interpret alcohol metabolite test results in light of the clinical picture.
Ethanol is manufactured by reacting ethene with steam. The catalyst used is solid silicon dioxide coated with phosphoric(V) acid. The reaction is reversible. Only 5% of the ethene is converted into ethanol at each pass through the reactor. If you are looking to make and sell your own alcohol products (liquor, beer, wine) then you will need to obtain the proper licenses for manufacturing and.

Linear and branched chain alcohols exhibit similar patterns of absorption, metabolism, and excretion. Both linear and branched aliphatic alcohols are absorbed through the gastrointestinal tract and are rapidly eliminated from the blood (DeBruin, 1976; Lington and Bevan, 1994). Plasma half-lives are difficult to measure since many of the low molecular weight metabolites (e.g. aldehydes, carboxylic acids) are endogenous in humans (Lington and Bevan, 1994). Toxicokinetic studies for Alcohols, C7-9-iso, C8-rich (Isooctanol; Exxal 8) CAS number 685266-83-0 and Alcohols, C11-14 iso, C13-rich (Isotridecanol: Exxal 13) CAS number 68526-86-3 will be conducted in 2016-2017 to determine the saturation of absorption and excretion. This data will be used as part of the integrated testing strategy as outlined in appendix 1 of the CSR. Linear and branched chain alcohols are initially oxidized to corresponding aldehydes and further to corresponding carboxylic acids by high capacity NAD+/NADH-dependent enzymes, ...
Is it possible to rewire our brain? (NOTE: Subscribers can still listen to this show). Sometimes this may happen without our knowledge, such as when we drink too much. Doctors have long recognized a link between alcoholism and anxiety disorders such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Those who drink heavily are at increased risk for traumatic events like car accidents and domestic violence, but that only partially explains the connection. New research using mice reveals heavy alcohol use actually rewires brain circuitry, making it harder for alcoholics to recover psychologically following a traumatic experience. Pharmacologist Thomas Kash says, Theres a whole spectrum to how people react to a traumatic event. Our research shows that chronic exposure to alcohol can cause a deficit with regard to how our cognitive brain centers control our emotional brain centers. Understanding the relationship between alcohol and anxiety at the molecular level could offer new possibilities for ...

Drinking less is the obvious solution.. But you can also reduce the causes:. One cause for a hangover are the metabolic products of the fusel alcohols (unwanted alcohols) in your drinks. First your body metabolizes the ethanol and then the fusel alcohols. Thats why drinking alcohol helps against a hangover as if gives the body some more ethanol to work on and thus reduces the toxins of the fusel alcohols. Thats why a Bloody Mary is a well known hangover cure. So try reducing the amount of fusel alcohols you consume by choosing high quality drinks that have less of them.. Another cause is dehydration and lack of electrolytes. So start hydrating yourself before, while and after you consume alcohol. And to keep the water in your body, make sure, you add enough electrolytes to bind the water. In russia and other slavic countrys there is a culture of eating salty (electrolytes and increasing thirst), sour (helps making you thirsty) and fatty (proteins and delays alcohol absorbtion) food along with ...

Turning to Israels southern border, some 35 rockets and mortar shells were fired at Israel in 2017 by terrorists inside the Gaza Strip . While some damage occurs by chance, our findings suggest that drinking alcohol can increase the risk of this damage. The first line of defence is a family of enzymes called aldehyde dehydrogenases (ALDH). The body does produce certain enzymes which can help in the process of breaking down acetaldehyde, and thus mitigating the damage it causes to ones DNA. This paper provides very strong evidence that an alcohol metabolite causes DNA damage [including] to the all-important stem cells that go on to make tissues. But they dont always work and some people carry mutations which mean their cells arent able to carry out these repairs effectively.. Its important to remember that alcohol clearance and DNA fix systems are not flawless, and alcohol can still cause cancer in different ways - even in people whose defence mechanisms are intact, Patel said..

So with such glaring instances of the impacts of alcohol use on Americans, and young people in particular, surely drug policy officials and politicians are aggressively pursuing legislation to engage in a full on War on Alcohol, like they have with the War on Drugs, right?. Well… not so much.. It may come as a shock, but U.S. federal and state officials seem to think banning alcohol is out of the question! Citing the past attempts at alcohol prohibition as a major failure that instigated higher crime rates, while also claiming the vital part alcohol production and sales play in the economy, lawmakers seem content with allowing the drug to remain in circulation.. Thankfully officials are still willing to provide emergency response services to individuals who have overdosed on alcohol or been injured in alcohol-related accidents. While city officials are fighting for the option to deny the overdose antidote Narcan to opioid users who overdose multiple times, none of these officials seem to ...
We know (or I do anyway) that when the alcohol production is increased, temperature is increased and we become warm pretty much all of the time. I had a funny moment earlier this year when one of my favorite clients (**** Ill add his name if he doesnt mind) told me that his his wife had passed comment that he always used to be warm. Id long suspected that my client was undernourished and I had all the evidence I needed for him to start repairing his liver and pancreas (which he is doing an excellent job of as we speak). Equally when our alcohol level goes down, our heat goes down and people tend to feel cold all of the time. Just by using a few simple tests I can guess what they are feeling like and what organs arent functioning optimally. Women tend to eat calorie controlled meals more than mean do, and they also seem to suffer with the greater prevalence to cold than men ...

Introduction. THE APPLICATION OF ENZYMES IN INDUSTRY AND MEDICINE Enzymes are biological catalysts that lower the activation energy for a reaction to take place. Enzymes have many advantageous qualities that allow them to be used in industry and medicine: * Enzymes are not used up in reactions; each molecule repeatedly carries out the same process. This makes enzyme technology very efficient as enzymes can be reused. * They have specificity. One type of enzyme will decompose one substrate into a particular product therefore there is no wastage of resources. * Enzymes are biodegradable; therefore there is little pollution in this industry. * Enzymes function at moderate temperatures, pressure and pH so energy is saved. Until recently most biotechnology involved whole organisms therefore many enzyme pathways were involved but now isolated enzymes can be used. There is still a lot of biotechnology taking place using whole organisms though e.g. yeast used in baking and alcohol production. ...

Volatile off-flavor compounds are present in beef. Using purge and trap gas chromatography and mass spectrometry, some volatile compounds were shown to have different concentrations in normal-flavored beef, compared to samples with liver-like off-flavor. Most of the compounds, like pentanol, hexanal, hexanol, 1-octen-3-ol, and nonanol, are associated with lipid oxidation. The compounds, β-pinene and 1-octen-3-ol were in higher concentration in the liver-like samples in all muscles tested. Several, small, unidentified peaks also differed between samples. Determination of the possible origins of these compounds may improve the quality and consistency of beef products.

  • In commercial foodstuffs, sugar alcohols are commonly used in place of table sugar ( sucrose ), often in combination with high intensity artificial sweeteners to counter the low sweetness. (
  • This displacement reaction is not frequently used to synthesize alcohols, however, because alkyl halides are more commonly synthesized from alcohols rather than vice versa. (
  • Binge drinking is commonly tied to alcohol poisoning. (
  • Sugar alcohols are commonly used in sugar free products and diet products because they are very slow to be absorbed and do not cause the "sugar rush / blood sugar spike" that normal carbohydrates cause. (

  • Different types of drinks contain different concentrations of alcohol. (
  • Drinks with high alcohol content, larger sizes, and additional sugar and syrup mixers. (
  • Peers also will tell your child that alcohol makes them feel good, gives them confidence, that there's no harm in drinking, and that everyone drinks. (
  • For example, the innocuous information programmes carried out by the drinks industry over the past decades or so are totally ineffective and represent nothing more than a means of staving off the introduction of measures that could reduce alcohol-related harm among people of all ages in this country. (
  • Four drinks in 1 hour and you have a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.08, the legal limit in most states. (
  • It's true that, in certain cases, moderate doses of alcohol may help keep the heart and its arteries clear--one or two drinks a day raises plaque-scavenging HDL cholesterol, softens artery walls, and makes blood cells less likely to clot. (
  • But alcohol is actually a depressant. (
  • Alcohol is a depressant , which means it slows the function of the central nervous system. (
  • Note that the fact that alcohol is classified as a Central Nervous System (CNS) depressant is irrelevant to it's effects on Depression as a psychiatric disorder. (
  • Hi, alcohol is a depressant, so it will go against the effects of the antidepressant/s. (
  • Alcohol is a depressant, but it's also an indirect stimulant, and plays a few other roles that might surprise you. (

  • [6] [7] Sugar alcohols, with the exception of erythritol , may also cause bloating and diarrhea when consumed in excessive amounts. (
  • however, sugar alcohols derived from disaccharides (e.g. maltitol and lactitol) are not entirely hydrogenated because only one aldehyde group is available for reduction. (
  • As a group, sugar alcohols are not as sweet as sucrose , and they have slightly less food energy than sucrose. (
  • Sugar alcohols are not metabolized by oral bacteria, and so they do not contribute to tooth decay . (
  • In addition to their sweetness, some sugar alcohols can produce a noticeable cooling sensation in the mouth when highly concentrated, for instance in sugar-free hard candy or chewing gum . (
  • The cooling sensation is due to the dissolution of the sugar alcohol being an endothermic (heat-absorbing) reaction [1] , one with a strong heat of solution . (
  • Sugar alcohols are usually incompletely absorbed into the blood stream from the small intestine which generally results in a smaller change in blood glucose than "regular" sugar ( sucrose ). (
  • The number of calories in a drink is primarily determined by the alcohol content, rather than the amount of sugar that is added to the drink. (
  • Sugar alcohols have about one-half to one-third fewer calories than regular sugar, because they convert to glucose more slowly. (
  • The caloric content varies by specific sugar alcohol. (
  • Some of the other sugar alcohols can have almost as many calories as sugar, so they're not necessarily used in 'diet' foods, but in sugar-free gum. (
  • This is because higher levels of sugar alcohols unabsorbed in the intestines can cause bloating, gas, and diarrhea. (
  • The only way to know how many sugar alcohols are in a given total carb count is if the maker of the product tells you what the actual net carbs of the food item are, doing that work for you. (
  • Many (if not most) people do not absorb sugar alcohols at all before they pass through the system. (
  • Because sugar alcohols just slide through your digestive system, they can cause a laxitive effect if you eat too many of them. (
  • When your intestines run into these sugar alcohols, they go a bit crazy :) Some people get a little farty. (
  • If you've never tried sugar alcohols before, be sure to try them in SMALL amounts to see which group you fall into. (
  • Do Sugar Alcohols Count? (
  • Sugar alcohols don't cause a sugar rush, and are pretty much passed through your system. (
  • But a few people DO have problems losing weight when they eat too many sugar alcohol products. (
  • But I do know people personally who stall when they eat sugar alcohol products. (
  • So I would be cautious about eating too many sugar alcohols. (
  • Some people complain - if sugar alcohols cause problems, why use them? (
  • If you're in the 1% that has tummy problems with sugar alcohols, you can eat the sugar-free items Splenda can be used to create. (
  • In general, sugar alcohols and any artificial sweeteners are good ways to wean yourself off of sugar - but remember that the end result of this process should be aiming to reduce your sweet tooth in general. (
  • So be sure to eat sugar alcohol items only occasionally, and stick with the healthy foods and meats that should be the bulk of your diet! (
  • NOTE: I've heard from pet owners that pets can get very sick if they eat items with sugar alcohols. (
  • Ingestion of large amounts of a toxic alcohol typically results in a large osmol gap followed by a high anion gap metabolic acidosis. (
