Other sugars include disaccharides such as maltose, sucrose, isomaltose, turanose, nigerose, melibiose, panose, maltotriose, and melezitose.
Potential Sucrose Substitute Turanose Biosynthesized
Honey is a natural mixture of compounds with high-sugar content (~38% fructose, ~32% glucose, ~1.7% maltose, ~1.4% sucrose, ~1% turanose, ~0.8% isomaltose, ~0.4% erlose, etc.) and minor constituents such as amino acids, proteins, vitamins, minerals, and polyphenols [17,18].
The contents of other two disaccharides, cellobiose and turanose were in the ranges of 1.55-2.17 and 2.52-3.41 mg/g, respectively.
mellifera and Melipona honey are poor in oligosaccharides, but honeys produced by other stingless bee species are rich in maltose and show slightly higher values of turanose, erlose and trehalose.
