In the small intestine.
9 of 15
Which organ produce hydrochloric acid?
Stomach.
10 of 15
Why does the stomach produces hydrochloric acid?
The enzymes in the stomach work best in acidic conditions.
11 of 15
Which organ produces the bile?
Liver.
12 of 15
Where is the bile stored before it is being released into the small intestine?
In the gall bladder.
13 of 15
What does bile do?
Bile neutralises the acid that was added to food in the stomach.
14 of 15
What does the neutralisation of acids provides?
This provides alkaline conditions in which enzymes in the small intestine work most efficiently.
