Digestive Roles

  • Pancreatic Juice = The pancreas, and the walls of the duodenum also, provides digestive enzymes that bring about necessary changes to carbohydrates, proteins, fats as well as DNA
  • Bile = The chyme from the stomach has to be neutralised in the duodenum. Alkaline salts must be added to the gut supplied by bile to make the contents alkaline. Bile also acts like a detergent, breaking fats up into tiny globules that form an emulsion, allowing the fat-digesting enzymes to reach the fat molecules
