        Wait, someone decided to put lactic acid in food; now I'm wondering how common of an ingredient that would be.

        Edit: wow it is a fairly common, but not unhealthy in and of itself, food product.

                          I was going to say the same thing: Truth in labeling!


                          And, some of us PURPOSELY cultivate lactic acid in our foods...: http://www.rosicrucianfellowship.com...rmentation.pdf

                          Lactic acid is a natural preservative that inhibits putrefying bacteria.
                          Got lactofermented sauerkraut, green beans , and salsa in my fridge right now.
