raf·fi·nose

(raf'i-nōs),
A dextrorotatory trisaccharide, occurring in cotton seed and in the molasses of beet root, composed of d-galactose, d-glucose, and d-fructose and formed by transfer of d-galactose from UDP-d-galactose to sucrose; many seeds are rich in raffinose.

raffinose

(răf′ə-nōs′)
n.
A trisaccharide, C18H32O16, composed of glucose, fructose, and galactose. It is obtained from sugar beets and cottonseed meal and is present in many legumes.

raffinose

(răf′ĭ-nōs)
A trisaccharide, melitose, present in certain plants, cereals, and fungi. Hydrolysis yields fructose and melibiose.

raffinose

a crystalline, trisaccharide obtained from cottonseed meal and Australian manna, a substance obtained from a number of eucalypts. Contains dextrose, fructose and galactose. Called also melitose.
