Sorbitol (CAS 50-70-4) is a sugar alcohol produced by reduction of glucose. The compound is a polyol found mainly in corn and fruits such as apples, prunes, peaches, and pears. Although produced for varying uses synthetically the D-Sorbitol has been observed to be produced by the bacterium Zymomonas mobilis from glucose with the use of glucose-fructose oxidoreductase. Metabolism of D-Sorbitol has been found to generate superoxide anion radicals in mitochondria.
