Lactococcus plantarum, and Lactococcus raffinolactis, these species differ only in melezitose and sorbitol fermentations.
Melezitose is preferred by several ant species and is important for ant-aphid relationships (Kiss 1981; Maurizio 1985).

Honeydew honey is characterized by a higher concentration of oligosaccharides, mainly trisaccharides melezitose and raffinose, which usually are not found in blossom honeys [7,8].
The sugars included: D-Xylose, L-Rhamnose, Sucrose, Lactose, Melibiose, Raffinose, Melezitose, Glycerol, Adonitol, Sorbitol and Mannitol.
Cotton honeydew extract is composed of unusual oligo-saccharides, such as fructose, glucose, inositol, melezitose, saccharose, trehalose and trehalulose.
