Lactose is a sugar
Lactic acid is a byproduct of incomplete metabolism of lactate in humans
as the result of lactic acid fermentation
lactic acid fermentation
A type of fermentation carried out by lactic acid bacteria in
which sugar (e.g. lactose, glucose, pentose) are converted either
entirely (or almost entirely) to lactic acid (homolactic fermentation) or
to a mixture of lactic acid and other products(heterolactic fermentation).
