It is known that carbohydrates on oxidation break into fragments which later are oxidised, or reduced, according as the conditions of the bodily functioning may favor, and it is in this process or reaction of the carbohydrate molecule that the formation of pyruvic acid probably takes place. From this point the pyruvic acid molecule on being fully oxidised would give the products carbon dioxide and water, and partial oxidation would give carbon dioxide and other products.
