A number of foods also include lactic acid to alter the pH balance or change the flavor. Certain types of bacteria added to milk, for example, produce the acid, which helps create the texture and tartness found in yogurt.

Beer and wine sometimes include bacteria that produces this acid, which can help eliminate other, somewhat unpleasant flavors produced during fermentation.
