  • Enzymes in digestion
    • Amylase
      • Where is it made?
        • Salivary Glands
        • Pancreas
        • Small intestine
      • What does it do?
        • Breaks down starch into sugars
    • Protease
      • Where is it produced?
        • Stomach
          • Called 'Pepsin' here
        • The Pancreas
        • The small intestine
      • What does it do?
        • Breaks down Protiens into amino acids
    • Lipase
      • Where is it made?
        • Pancreas
        • Small intestine
    • Bile
      • Where is it produced?
        • The liver
          • Stored in the gall bladder
      • What does it do?
        • It neutralizes the food passing through the small intestine that is acidic due to hydrochloric acid in the stomach
        • Emulsifies fats, to provide a larger surface area for Lipase to act on.
