Other Names: Aldehyde-L-arabinose
L-arabinose uses corn cob as raw material for extraction, decolorization, dehydration, and crystallization. It is a white crystalline powder, odorless and sweet (sweetness is about 50% of sucrose). It is soluble in water, but the solubility is lower than that of sucrose; it has high stability to heat and acid.
L-arabinose is aldopentose which is more common than A-arabinose in nature, which is a kind of Non-Calorie sweetener.
L-arabinose can inhibit the activity of Sucrase/Maltase. Therefore, it can prevent fat accumulation and protect against diabetes.
