I tend to take mints to keep my throat comfortable & give me comfort while at work.

However, I don't like too much sugar as I'll get migraine (& my dad is a diabetic), so
I thought sugar-free mints like Ricola (use xylitol?) or Eclipse (use sorbitol) will be
good choices but I noted I'll get diarrhoe if I take about 15pcs or more per day.

What's the sweetener used in Fisherman Friends mints?

Between xylitol, sorbitol, aspartame & any other sugar substitutes, which are
best tolerated & has least side effects?  Some studies indicate xylitol.
