Application

Dulcitol (Galactitol), a sugar alcohol derived through reduction of galactose, is important in studies related to cataract formation, hepatosplenomegaly and mental retardation. It is used as a substrate to identify, differentiate and characterize galactitol dehydrogenase(s). Galactitol may be used as a reference compound in analytical procedures developed to analyze sugar alcohols in plants and food.

Biochem/physiol Actions

A sugar alcohol and slightly sweet tastant for human taste cells.
