*  Levan polysaccharide
Levans are a group of fructans; polymers of fructose forming a non-structural carbohydrate, which in the case of levans can themselves link to form super-molecules comprising even hundreds of thousands.

Levans are produced in almost all bacterial versions of fructan production, as well as being possible to produce by fracturing soybean mucilage. Food microbiology Industrial ...
