General: 72-17-3
L: 867-56-1

Based on our advanced technologies for organic synthesis and fermentative production, we sell DL-Lactic Acid produced with the chemical synthetic procedure, L-Lactic Acid produced with the fermentation method, and their sodium salts around the world.

Sodium Lactate has a cushioning effect to stabilize the pH of foods. It is also used in many foods as a seasoning to improve flavor. Sodium Lactate has excellent moisture-retaining effects that are not affected by temperature and humidity, which helps retain moisture even at low temperature and low humidity.
