Ethyl lactate both environmental ethics and the discerning palate
Ethyl lactate has been championed as a natural, biodegradable solution to solvents in pharmaceutical and food production. The chemical is derived from natural and renewable resources with an emphasis on biodegradability after use. The long term impact of ethyl lactate production and implementation is relatively mild. In line with this principle, the chemical itself, which naturally occurs in fruits and wines, is also relatively mild to the consumer. The flavouring is considered creamy and buttery and it contains subtle hints that have been related to fruit and coconuts. This combination along with its low cost of production makes ethyl lactate an obvious choice that pleases everyone.
