13]C NMR data were similar to that of compound 1a/b, except for the absence of the fourth rhamnose moiety which was confirmed by the presence of 4 anomeric protons only (Table 2).
The carbohydrate portion contains a variety of insoluble polysaccharides (containing rhamnose, arabinose, galactose, galacturonic acid, glucose, xylose, and mannose) and soluble components, such as sucrose, raffinose, and stachyose (Eldrige et al.
1999) that the increases of xylose and ribose as well as arabinose, rhamnose, and galactose can be directly related to the enzymatic treatment of wine.

Kaden Biochemicals7rare sugar lines include monosaccharides, disaccharides and trisaccharides such as rhamnose, arabinose and galactose.
Like the rest of the line, both these products contain anti-aging rhamnose, an ultra-pure sugar extracted from Brazilian plants which reactivates skin's collagenproducing papillary fibroblasts.
The result of 10 years of research, which has been published in six scientific journals, the two creams, which incorporate 5% rhamnose (a Brazilian plant sugar), are claimed to stimulate collagen in a very targeted manner.
