Sodium Lactate is another name for Lactic Acid, and I do believe that it is found in milk (among other places).

I've seen lactic acid being derived from beets here recently in a few products.

Here's an explantation from Applegate Farms on what lactic acid is and does.

from my vegan handbook.. it lists it as "the salt from lactic acid"
and not appropriate for vegans.. which means it is an animal by-product and has dairy in it.

This is from Wikipedia:

Lactic acid in food

Lactic acid is used in a variety of foodstuffs to act as an acidity regulator. Although it can be fermented from lactose (milk sugar), most commercially used lactic acid is derived by using bacteria such as Bascillus acidilacti, Lactobascillus delbueckii or L. bulgaricuswhey to ferment carbohydrates from sources such as cornstarch, potatoes or molasses. Thus, although it is commonly known as "milk acid", products claiming to be vegetarian or vegan do sometimes feature lactic acid as an ingredient.
