Lactic Acid Capable of Improving Quality of Tobacco Products

Lactic acid can be used to improve the quality of tobacco products by removing impurities from them, improving their taste and upgrading them.

As a type of important organic acid, lactic acid is extensively used in the food-processing industry.

Lactates and lactic esters - two types of derivatives from lactic acid - are even more extensively applied in the food, pharmaceutical and beverage industries. For example, calcium lactate can be used as a nutrition reinforcer of calcium, ferrous lactate as ferrous nutrition reinforcer and zinc lactate as a zinc nutrition reinforcer.

One of the most important new effects of lactic acid developed in recent years is to biologically degrade composite materials of plastics, namely biologically degrade plastics with lactic acid bacteria. Enditem
