The polyols used in place of sugar have fewer calories because they’re not completely absorbed in the body.

Because they’re not completely absorbed, you have these polyols ending up in your lower intestine, your colon, where they have the same effect as fibers. They ‘attract’ liquid. Into your colon.

Which leads to your watery diarrhea.
