Ethyl lactate, a naturally occurring additive with positive impacts
In food production in the modern world it is becoming increasing more desirable to employ the use of green products with environmentally conscious production and disposal implications. With ethyl lactate this is exactly what you get. Derived from fermented corn starch, a renewable resource, and exempt from many disposal restrictions due to its biodegradable nature, ethyl lactate is a safer and low cost alternative to many other organic solvents. In food preparation with increased scrutiny on what goes into the production of a product as much as the product itself, ethyl lactate serves to ease the minds of conscientious consumers who want products derived from natural resources.
