In brief: Sorbitol and xylitol

are types of sugar that don't promote tooth decay.
Aspartame is a sweet tasting food protein that is used as a sugar substitute. All three are normal food substances and your body metabolizes (burns) them just as it does all other foods. They are not dangerous and don't need to be flushed away. You're OK and don't need to worry about them.
