Here are some key points about lactic acid:

  • Chemical Composition: Lactic acid, also known as milk acid due to its presence in sour milk, has the chemical formula C3H6O3. It is classified as a carboxylic acid.

  • Role in Fermentation: Lactic acid fermentation is a metabolic process in which carbohydrates, such as glucose, are converted into lactic acid by microorganisms, particularly lactic acid bacteria. This fermentation process is used in the production of various foods and beverages, including yogurt, cheese, sauerkraut, and pickles. Lactic acid gives these products their characteristic tangy flavor.

  • Food Preservation: Lactic acid also has preservative properties, which help extend the shelf life of certain foods by inhibiting the growth of harmful bacteria. This preservation method is common in the production of fermented vegetables and dairy products.

  • Industrial Uses: Lactic acid has numerous industrial applications, including its use as a food additive, pH regulator, and flavoring agent. It is also employed in the production of biodegradable plastics, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and textiles.

  • Types of Lactic Acid: There are two stereoisomers of lactic acid: L-lactic acid and D-lactic acid. Lactic acid found in natural sources and produced during fermentation is typically the L-form, while the D-form is less common in nature and mainly found in certain bacteria.
