Lactic acid is majorly used in the production of PLA, which is a biodegradable polymer and a compostable thermoplastic made from renewable sources, such as lactic acid, produced via fermentation processes. This chemical is Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) and has great market potential in the food industry as it is being recognized as harmless by the United States Food & Drug Administration. It can be alternatively produced by chemical synthesis or fermentation.

Lactic acid is one of the most well-known organic acids, with a diverse range of industrial applications. The food, chemical, pharmaceutical, and cosmetics sectors all use this substance extensively. This product is lactic acid bacteria, which is a broad term for a diverse range of helpful bacteria with probiotic qualities. This acid is also used in the production of wine and fermented dairy products, as well as the pickling of vegetables and the curing of fish, pork, and sausages.

Lactic acid is utilised as a preservative and acidulant in pickled vegetables and olives, as well as a prominent element in fermented foods such as canned vegetables, yoghurt, and butter. Food and beverages, medicines, cosmetics, chemicals, and industrial applications all employ this naturally occurring organic acid.

This is an example of a large-scale production of organic acids. Carbohydrates derived from various sources, such as sugarcane and corn starch, are the most widely utilised feedstock. Organic acids like formic acid and lactic acid, unlike mineral acids, do not entirely dissociate in water.
