When galactose is combined with glucose, through a condensation reaction, the result is a disaccharide called lactose. Galactose can be called as a building block of lactose. Lactose is found in milk. Lactose can also be found in cream, fresh cheeses, and yoghurt, in addition to milk.. Lactose is necessary for diet as it helps in the absorption of calcium and phosphorus.
