General description

Xylose is a five-carbon sugar that contributes to lignocellulose in plants. Xylose is predominantly found in hardwoods and agricultural residues.

Application

D-(+)-Xylose has been used:
  • as one of the component to stimulate microbial activity
  • for the enhancement of biofilm formation
  • as a part of biochemical tests for the identification of B. cereus group
  • for substrate screening characterization

Packaging

10 mg in glass bottle
500 g in poly bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Estimation of xylose in the urine after oral administration, is useful in diagnosing absorption of carbohydrates and malabsorption of non-pancreatic molecules. Xylose plays a significant role in the biologically conversion of plant biomass to fuels and chemicals.

Quality

White to off-white.
