A biologically important sugar, sourced from plants

L-Fucose is a naturally occurring sugar manufactured from bio-based hydrolysate using special solvent free separation techniques. It is a biologically important sugar playing a role in many cell-cell interactions. L-Fucose containing oligosaccharides are being widely studied as potential anti-inflammatory as well as anti-cancer agents.

L-Fucose is used for pharmaceutical research and development, in new applications with medical nutrition as well as in cosmetics as an anti-ageing agent supporting skin elasticity.

Nutrition & Biosciences is the only large-scale producer of L-Fucose, available as a white crystalline powder.
