APPLICATION OF ANAEROBIC RESPIRATION IN INDUSTRY AND AT HOME INDUSTRY

APPLICATION OF ANAEROBIC RESPIRATION IN INDUSTRY AND AT HOME INDUSTRY Making of beer and wines. Ethanol in beer comes from fermentation of sugar (maltose) in germinating barley seeds. Sugar in fruits is broken down anaerobically to produce ethanol in wines. In the dairy industry, bacterial fermentation occurs in the production of several dairy products such as cheese, butter and yoghurt. In production of organic acids e.g., acetic acid, that are used in industry e.g., in preservation of foods. Home Fermentation of grains is used to produce all kinds of beverages e.g., traditional beer and sour porridge. Fermentation of milk.   See also AEROBIC AND ANAEROBIC RESPIRATION BIOLOGY PRACTICAL ACTIVITIES MEANING AND SIGNIFICANCE OF RESPIRATION ALLERGIC REACTIONS IMPORTANCE OF VACCINATION

COMPARISON BETWEEN ENERGY OUTPUT IN AEROBIC AND ANAEROBIC RESPIRATION

COMPARISON BETWEEN ENERGY OUTPUT IN AEROBIC AND ANAEROBIC RESPIRATION Aerobic respiration results in the formation of simple inorganic molecules, water and carbon (Iv) oxide as the by¬¨products. These cannot be broken down further. A lot of energy is produced. When a molecule of glucose is broken down in the presence of oxygen, 2880 KJ of energy are produced (38 molecules of ATP). In anaerobic respiration the by products are organic compounds.   These can be broken down further in the presence of oxygen to give more energy. Far less energy is thus produced. The process is not economical as far as energy production is concerned. When a molecule of glucose is broken down in the absence of oxygen in plants, 210 KJ are produced (2 molecule ATP). In animals, anaerobic respiration yields 150 kJ of energy.   See aslo BIOLOGY PRACTICAL ACTIVITIES MEANING AND SIGNIFICANCE OF RESPIRATION ALLERGIC REACTIONS IMPORTANCE… Read More »COMPARISON BETWEEN ENERGY OUTPUT IN AEROBIC AND ANAEROBIC RESPIRATION
