Lactic Acid (a.k.a. 2-Hydroxypropanoic Acid) is an organic alpha hydroxy acid that can be found as D, L or racemic isomers (chiral molecule). Lactic acid appears as colorless to yellow odorless liquid. Lactic acid can be found naturally in almost every single living organism, since it is the product of anaerobic metabolism of sugar. It plays an important role on a series of biochemical processes. It has been historically used in the food industry as a preservative, acidulant and flavouring.
