What does the liver produce?
Bile is produced in the liver.
1 of 13
Where are the three places that amylase is made?
1. Salivary Glands. 2. The Pancreas. 3. The Small Intestine
2 of 13
Where are the three places that protease is made?
1. The Stomach (it's called Pepsin there). 2. The Pancreas. 3. The Small Intestine
3 of 13
Where are the two places that lipase is made?
1. The Pancreas. 2. The Small Intestine
4 of 13
What does Bile do?
Neutralises the stomach acid and emulsifies fats
5 of 13
The hydrochloric acid in the stomach makes the pH what for the enzymes in the small intestine to work properly
Makes the pH to acidic for enzymes in the small intestine to work properly
6 of 13
When bile emulsifies fats, what does it do?
It breaks the fat down into tiny droplets. This gives a much bigger surface area of fate for the enzyme lipase to work on - which makes its digestion faster.
7 of 13
What does amylase convert starch into?
Sugars.
8 of 13
What does protease convert protein into?
Amino acids.
9 of 13
What does Lipase convert liquid into?
Glycerol and Fatty acids.
10 of 13
What kind of molecules are starch, proteins and fats?
BIG molecules.
11 of 13
What kind of molecules are sugars, amino acids, glycerol and fatty acids?
Small molecules.
12 of 13
What do the digestive enzymes do to the BIG molecules?
The digestive enzymes break down the BIG molecules into smaller ones.
