PLA is a polymer produced by fermentation from a carbohydrate source such as corn starch or sugar cane. For production, the corn is first ground wet so that the starch is separated. The starch is then mixed with acids or enzymes and heated. In this process, the starch is broken down into dextrose (D-glucose), the corn sugar. Finally, fermentation of glucose produces L-lactic acid, which is the basic component of PLA.
