lactic acid

Recommended Posts

Is lactic acid ok? It's an ingredient in a jar of green olives. I know that lactic acid can sometimes be from milk, but it is just a byproduct of fermentation (lacto-fermented veggies, any kind of fermented beverage like kombucha, etc. are tangy because of lactic acid produced by the bacteria digesting sugar) I tried searching google for "is lactic acid whole30" and didn't really get a good answer. Thanks

It will depend on the ingredients of the actual pickles. I know that some do use sugar in the brine. So you would have to ask at the deli whats in them or read the ingredient list from the actual product
