So, what is e270?

E270 is a food additive that is also known as lactic acid. It is a naturally occurring organic acid that is present in many foods, including dairy products, meat, and fermented foods. E270 is commonly used as a food preservative, flavoring agent, and pH regulator in a variety of processed foods, such as bakery products, beverages, and canned foods. It is also used in the production of biodegradable plastics, pharmaceuticals, and personal care products. Despite being an acid, E270 has a mild, slightly sour taste and is generally considered safe for consumption in small quantities. Its versatile properties and natural origins make it a popular choice for food manufacturers and consumers alike.
