Post Types of sugar alcohols

What are the names of other sugar alcohols that you can deduct from carb count? Is one type sorbitol and can it be deducted for net carbs?

most of the carbs in the lc products can be deducted as most are fiber&or sugar alcohols. for example, i buy low carb brownies that are 29 carbs but all but 2 are sugar alcohol& fiber.

other common ones are xylitol and malitol...sugar alcohols can be deducted to obtain the net effective carbs...supposedly they are not absorbed and do not have an impact on the insulin level...however, they may evoke cravings (whether it is psychological or perhaps they do impact the insulin levels of some)...
and too much of them at any given time will result in gastrointestinal distress
