Hi all.



Was shopping today and wanted some soy sauce... i looked on the back of one but put it back because it contained lactic acid. I might be being dumb here, but does that come from milk?



Thanks. x

I know that Amoy soy sauce lactic acid, is vegan because I emailed them about it. But I can't vouch for anything else.

it can (and probably most of the time) come from milk, but another common source is beets

It can be made from milk but commercially they use bacteria.
