What is L-Arabinose

L-Arabinose is a naturally occurring pentose with  a sweet taste and is widely distributed as a component of complex non-starch polysaccharides in plant cell walls  and plant  gums. 

As a low-calorie sugar-substituting sweetener, the relative sweetness of L-Arabinose equals to half of the Sucrose’s.  Some research suggested that L-Arabinose selectively inhibit sucrose absorption and then inhibit the increase of blood sugar.

Furthermore, L-Arabinose is an intermediate in flavor industry for producing flavors, the derivates of L-Arabinose can be used in the development of antiviral agents such as nucleoside.
