Mannose is a sugar similar to glucose in its chemical composition, but having different spatial structure. Has a promising application.

 


Description:

Mannose – a monosaccharide with the General formula C6H12O6 (stereoisomer – epimer glucose), is a component of many polysaccharides and mixed biopolymers of plant, animal and bacterial origin.

Mannose is a sugar similar to glucose in its chemical composition, but having different spatial structure.

Mannose also has several isomers. In nature, only the D-form.

In nature, found in many citrus fruits, Anacardium (cashews) and corynocarpus, fungi, for example in the common chanterelle (Cantharellus cibarius).

Mannose – solid, crystalline substance, very soluble in water, has a sweet taste. Density of 1.54 g/cm3. Melting point 132 °C.

Mannose is virtually no metabolites in the human body. Because of this, mannose does not affect the carbohydrate metabolism and has no effect when ingested. Over time eliminated from the body: about 90% within 30-60 minutes, 99% within 8 hours.

As writes RIA Novosti, citing scientific research, it is believed that mannose protects the body from obesity and also has anti-cancer properties.
