digestion
1 of 10
This can't dissolve in a liquid.
insoluble
2 of 10
This enzyme breaks down large fat molecules to small fatty acids & glycerol.
lipase
3 of 10
This enzyme breaks down large protein molecules to small amio acids.
protease
4 of 10
This enzyme breaks down larch starch molecules to small glucose molecules.
carbohydrase
5 of 10
This is what happens when you heat an enzyme & it's structure is destroyed so lock & key no longer works.

6 of 10
This is a plastic tube that represents the small intestine.
