Galactose (frae the Greek (leidk stem γάλακτ– galakt–, "milk"), sometimes abbreviatit Gal, is a monosaccharide succar that is less sweet than glucose. It is a C-4 epimer o glucose.

Galactan is a polymer o the succar galactose foond in hemicellulose. Galactan can be convertit tae galactose bi hydrolysis.
