Mannitol is a white, crystalline solid that looks and tastes sweet like sucrose. It was originally isolated from the secretions of the flowering ash.

Mannitol is classified as a sugar alcohol; as it is derived from a sugar (mannose) by reduction. Mannitol spheres are usually white in colour but can also be made in a variety of colours based on specification. Mannitol spheres are stable at ambient conditions.
