Ingredi L(+) Lactic Acid 88% liquid also known as Milk Acid is manufactured and packaged by Jungbunzlauer in bulk 5 gallon (55 pound) Jug. 

Lactic Acid is an organic acid that is naturally occurring in the human body and fermented foods. Fermentation occurs when natural bacteria feed on the sugar and starch of a food, producing lactic acid. The process creates B-vitamins, beneficial enzymes, and more. L(+) form is preferred for better metabolism and natural carbohydrates. It is used for food and personal care products. 

As an ingredient in personal care products, Lactic Acid has the ability to boost skin’s moisture levels—even as it exfoliates. At higher concentrations, lactic acid acts as an exfoliator helping to dissolve connections between skin cells, while at lower levels it is used as a humectant, meaning it can actually help hydrate skin by pulling in water to the outer skin layer.


Ingredi Lactic Acid is affirmed GRAS by the FDA. It is also certified 21 CFR 184.1061. The substance does not use genetically modified microorganism for fermentation. It is Kosher under the Orthodox Union and Halal certified. 


Lactic Acid is a mild-tasting acidity regulator, flavor enhancer, and shows antibacterial properties. It is colorless to yellowish, nearly odorless, and has a syrupy texture. It is an aqueous solution stable under normal conditions and has a pH (50%) value of less than 2 at 25°C. Milk Acid is easily biodegradable and should not be in environments warmer than 200°C.

    I use this product as an ingredient in beer to manage pH and to flavor sour beer styles. It is by far the cleanest and best tasting lactic acid on the market
