What is the L-arabinose?

L-arabinose is a kind of aldopentoses, it's a low-calurie sweetener, it inhibits the sucrase activity and prevents increasing of blood glucose, therefore, it can prevent fat accumulation and against high blood glucose disease. L-arabinose is more common than D-arabinose in nature, it can be used as pharmaceutical intermediate, preparing culture medium and be used for synthesis in the flavour industry.

1.L-arabinose can be used as a sucrose enzyme inhibitor to lower the Glycaemic Index(GI) of              sucrose containing products.

2.L-arabinose can be used in developing antiviral agents such as nucleoside analogues

3.L-arabinose can be used in various foods (except foods for infants or young children)

4.L-arabinose can be used as raw material for the synthesis of fine chemicals as well as                    pharmaceutical intermediate.
