Presentation on theme: "Fermentation allows glycolysis to continue."— Presentation transcript:
1 KEY CONCEPT Fermentation occurs in place of cellular respiration when oxygen is NOT present.
2 Fermentation allows glycolysis to continue. Fermentation is an anaerobic process.occurs when oxygen is not available for cellular respirationdoes not produce ATP, but allows glycolysis to continue so it can make a small amount of ATP.
3 There are two types of fermentation: Lactic Acid and Alcoholic Lactic acid fermentation occurs in muscle cells.glycolysis splits glucose into two pyruvate moleculespyruvate is converted into lactic acidLactic acid causes soreness in muscles
4 Alcoholic fermentation is similar to lactic acid fermentation. glycolysis splits glucose into two pyruvate moleculespyruvate is converted into alcohol and carbon dioxidealcoholic fermentation takes place in yeast and some plants
5 Fermentation is used in food production. yogurtcheesebread
