The crystal structure unequivocally confirms the relative stereochemistry of the title compound, C6H11FO5. The absolute stereochemistry was determined by the use of d-galactose as the starting material. The compound exists as a three-dimensional O—H⋯O hydrogen-bonded network with each mol­ecule acting as a donor and acceptor for four hydrogen bonds.
