Description of key information

Additional information

Sodium lactate fully dissociates into Na+ ions and lactate. The transport and distribution behaviour of lactate in the environment can be understood in terms of the transport and distribution behaviour of lactic acid.

Due to considerations of degradability, metabolism, and hydrophobicity, it can safely be stated that lactic acid will not bioaccumulate or bioconcentrate.
