Product name: l-fucose. 

Fucose (fucose) is a kind of six-carbon sugar, also known as 6-deoxy-L-galactose, and can be regarded as a kind of methyl pentose. 

Most of the fucose in nature is L-fucose, and the fucose with D configuration is only found in some glycosyl compounds as a rare sugar.

Fucose in some blood group substances is a marker of a certain blood group.
