Effects on fertility

Description of key information
not relevant
Additional information

Sodium lactate fully dissociates into Na+ ions and lactate. The toxicology of sodium lactate can be understood in terms of the toxicology of lactic acid.

Lactic acid is a major and essential species in mammalian primary metabolism, and a ubiquitous ingredient in all kinds of food. Reprotox is not a relevant end point for such a substance since there is no way of lowering exposure below minimum required levels or normal (or even abnormal) internal levels.

Additional information

Sodium lactate fully dissociates into Na+ ions and lactate. The toxicology of sodium lactate can be understood in terms of the toxicology of lactic acid.

Lactic acid is a major and essential species in mammaliab primary metabolism, and a ubiquitous ingredient in all kinds of food. Carcinogenicity is not a relevant end point for such a substance since there is no way of lowering exposure below minimum required levels or normal (or even abnormal) internal levels.
