Energy molecules and process involved in lactic acid fermentation and alcohol fermentation

Fermentation helps glycolysis. Glycolysis makes 2 net ATP but needs NAD+

Both types convert NADH to NAD+ so that glycolysis can keep working

Alcoholic makes CO2 along with alcohol (Ethanol) but lactic acid just makes lactic acidosis
