Lactic acid is used to regulate acidity. In addition, it is used in the tanning and textile industry as well as in beekeeping, where it is used together with oxalic and formic acid to fight the Varroa destructor mite (varroose). Lactic acid is also used to remove scars, efflorescence, warts and birthmarks. This substance is present in sour milk, and also formed in the muscles during physical exertion. It arises in food products obtained through lactic fermentation. It is created as a result of fermentation of sugars contained in these products, ie lactose present in milk and fructose contained in vegetables and fruits. The presence of lactic acid in milk starts coagulation of proteins. This process is used extensively during the production of dairy products, including cheeses, yoghurts, kefirs and other milk derivatives.
Lactic acid is less harmful than commonly used vinegar.
The broadly understood chemical industry uses it for the production of propylene glycol as well as acrylic acid.
