Hi boys! You´d never believe what I discovered today
Not now Diego.Let´s go to a bar!
Like the one used to produce alcohol?
Well guys, did you know that our body uses fermentation when we get more oxygen, than the one we can process?!
Yes! Let me explain you. Alcoholic fermentation is a complex biochemical processduring which yeasts convert sugars to ethanol
First, one glucose molecule breaks down into two pyruvates;then, the energy from this exothermic reaction convert NAD+ to NADH. The twopyruvates are then broken down into two C2H4O and give off two CO2 as aby-product. And finally, the two C2H4O are then converted to two ethanol byusing the H- ions from NADH, converting NAD+ back into NADH.
And that's how beer is made?
Not exactly, however that's how alcohol is generated.
Thanks to my favorite and most intelligent high school teacher, Ms. Nashiely.
