What happened to lactate after fermentation?
Does our body absorb or turn it into something else?

glucose is broken down into lactate only in case ofprokaryotic organisms which have an enzyme pyruvate hydrogenase. which will be given out by that organism as a waste product
in eukaryotes lactate is produced only when there is a fast work done by us like running in which oxygen supply is not sufficient enough hence glucose will be broken down into lactate which is responsible for muscular pain which we get after a heavy work ;
this will be thenconverted back to pyruvate by our cells by an enxyme lactate dehydrogenase
