Additional information

Calcium lactate fully dissociates into Ca2+ ions and lactate. The toxicological effects of lactate can be understood in terms of the toxicological effect of lactic acid. Calcium ions - i.e. simple calcium salts, are non-toxic.

Lactic acid is a major and essential species in mammalian 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.Apart from this, calcium lacate is not carcinogenic.
