More than sugar, this is about sweeteners. All sweeteners are no sugar (some are alcohols) and all sugar do not sweeten (starch for example).

Other stuff like peptides and alcohols...
Alcohols being a class of chemicals, I am indeed not refering to ethanol. But sorbitol is an alcohol, and a good sweetener.
