No. Lactic acid is a different molecule than lactose. Molecular Formulas: Lactic Acid- C3H6O3 Lactose- C12H22O11 In addition, lactose is a sugar molecular while, as you may guess, lactic acid is an acid. When raw milk turns sour or becomes curdled, lactic acid bacteria are fermenting lactose into lactic acid.
