Galactose is a simple sugar, that when combined with glucose, makes lactose. As a result, galactose is mostly found in dairy foods like cheese and yogurt. Compared with glucose and fructose, galactose is not found in high quantities in any food. Foods high in galactose include honey, beets, cheese, yogurt, cherries, celery, kiwifruit, soy sauce, plums, and dried figs. Foods made with cheese or milk can also be high in galactose, such as pizza and pudding.
