Food Processing

Table sugar [30] [31]

Taste similar to sucrose, 50% of sucrose sweetness, ready used as table sugar.

Functional food [32] [33]

Special health food additive for regulating blood sugar, used in diabetic foods, diet foods, and other functional foods.

Beverage [34] [35]

Can be added to functional drinks such as low sugar drinks, sugar-free drinks, tea drinks, milk drinks, vegetable protein drinks, fruit-vegetable juice drinks. It can also be used in spirit or wine to alleviate hangover.

Bake [36] [37]

L-Arabinose has a relatively stable structure and does not decompose at high temperatures. The Maillard reaction during baking makes the flavor of bakery products more unique and brighter.


Rare sugar synthesis [38] [39] [40]

Substances for example L-ribose, L-ribulose, D-tagatose, L-arabinitol, and C-nucleosides were prepared by biological fermentation, chemical synthesis based on L-arabinose.

pharmaceutical [41] [42] [43]

Arabinose is an important pharmaceutical intermediate that not only can be used to synthesize cytarabine, L-arabinoside, L-ribose, deoxyribose, but also can be used to synthesize nucleoside antiviral drugs.


Energy [44] [45]

Strains that capable of producing energy substances such as ethanol and butanol using L-arabinose are obtained through domestication and genetic recombination.

Fine chemicals [46] [47]

Preparation of surfactants, metal-carbohydrate complexes.
