    Product information "Lactic acid, 90 % (E 270) (5 kg)"

    CAS-Nummer: 50-21-5 (unspez.),
    Synonym: 2-hydroxypropanoic acid, 2-hydroxypropionic acid

    Lactic acid (racemate), natural. Approved as food additive E 270. Organic acid for industrial purposes. Use in food and technical applications.


    Liquid lactic acid (racemate), as a 1:1 mixture of levorotatory and dextrorotatory lactic acid, is very commonly used for acid regulation in bakery and confectionery products or in beverages and for preservation. Likewise, lactic acid is used in lactofermentation and is used to preserve silages in feed production. In technical applications, lactic acid provides support through its biocidal effect and is therefore a component of disinfectant solutions and other cleaners. In addition, lactic acid is used for gentle decalcification. 


    Wash hands and other exposed body parts with mild soap and water before eating, drinking or smoking and when leaving the workplace. Provide process area with good ventilation to prevent formation of vapors.
