L- Lactic Acid

L-type and D-type Lactic Acids are organic acids that are included in many food products. 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 D-Lactic Acid around the world.

As food is becoming more diverse, we are providing L-Lactic Acid based on the technology our company has developed. Our L-Lactic Acid is produced from (non-genetically modified) corn with the fermentation method. 

Basic information

What is Lactic Acid?

Since before the time of recorded history, human beings have been taking in Lactic Acid from dairy products, fermented products, fruits, etc. At present, Japanese people are said to take in about 1 g of Lactic Acid from food per day.

The quality of Lactic Acid as a food additive is determined by the amount of impurities. DL-Lactic Acid is highly pure, so it can be used without worry. There are L-Lactic Acid and D-Lactic Acid, and both are abundant in nature. The Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives has not set the upper limit of the amount of them as additives.
In experiments in which lactic acid is directly administered to rats, toxicity was not observed in either D-type Lactic Acid or L-type Lactic Acid. There is no difference in toxicity between D-type and L-type Lactic Acids.
