Definitions for "Pyruvate"
is a three-carbon carbohydrate that is used in energy production and fuel storage. It is derived from red apples, vegetables, most cheeses, and alcoholic beverages, such as beer and red wine.

The muscles can then burn the glucose for energy if exercising or store it as glycogen for later use.
