    Galactans are a type of oligosaccharide (complex carbohydrate). Galactans are chains of the sugar galactose. The primary dietary sources of galactans are certain legumes, such as baked beans, kidney beans, chick peas, soy products and so on. Galactans are also present in green and yellow (wax) beans, cabbage and brussels sprouts.
