Whilst the syrup is high in calories, these calories cannot be absorbed by the human body. We lack the necessary enzymes to break down the sugar in our intestines into a form we can absorb.

This means that from lactulose we get a sweet taste but little or no energy; however, we can't use it properly as a sweetener because of its laxative effect.
