Using transmittance data appropriate for grain material which is predominantly comprised of polysaccharides we have computed infrared fluxes from several types of galactic infrared source. The model used in these computations involves polysaccharide condensation in material flowing out from O-type stars. With the exception of rather minor discrepancies we show that it is possible to match the 2.113 observations of a wide range of galactic infrared sources.
