  • Enzymes
    • Carbohydrates
      • Carbohydrase such as amylase
        • Produced in pancreas, salivary glands and small intestine
          • Starts digestion in mouth, enzymes made in pancreas flow to the small intestine where most of the starch is digested.
      • Starch into sugars
    • Proteins
      • Proteins into amino acids
      • Enzyme is protease
        • Produced in stomach, pancreas and small intestine.
    • Fats and Oils (Lipids)
      • Lipids into fatty acids and glycerol
      • Enzyme is called lipase
        • Produced in pancreas and small intestine
    • Digestion doesnt take place in pancreas. enzymes produced in pancreas flow to the small intestine.




A really helpful document summarising all the points related to the topic. Well, exactly what I needed and looking for.
