Allerlei: vastgesteld in een groot aantal voedingswaren en dranken (geroosterd of gebakken vlees/vis/koffie/bier). De dagelijkse inname van glyoxaal via de voeding, is geschat op max. 10 mg. Komt ook voor in sigarettenrook en uitlaatgassen. Sporen van glyoxaal zijn eveneens vastgesteld in drinkwater.

In het lichaam wordt glyoxaal gevormd tijdens gewone cellulaire stofwisselingsprocessen, en bij de metabolisatie van bepaalde andere verbindingen zoals glycolaldehyde of ethyleenglycol. De normale concentratie van glyoxaal in het bloedplasma ligt tussen 0,1 en 1 μmol/liter.

Gebruikt: In papierfabricage om de sterkte van nat papier te verbeteren of om coatings van papier waterbestendig te maken. In textielveredeling, om katoen en andere cellulosevezels kreuk- en krimpbestendiger te maken. Het vindt ook toepassing in vochtbestendige lijmen en kleefmiddelen.

Glyoxaal kan de oplosbaarheid van wateroplosbare polymeren verbeteren, bijvoorbeeld van hydroxyethylcellulose. De deeltjes van deze stof hebben de neiging om in water samen te klitten en vlokken te vormen; maar als ze eerst met glyoxaal behandeld zijn, zijn ze wel goed oplosbaar. Onder meer toegepast bij de bereiding van bepaalde cosmetische producten die deze stoffen bevatten (maximale glyoxaalconcentratie: 0,01 gewichtsprocent).

Glyoxaal is een ingrediënt in bepaalde desinfecterende middelen.
