(Additional Information)

(i) Pancreatic juice contains trypsin. Trypsin digests the proteins from food.

(ii) Saliva contains salivary amylase. It hydrolyzes starch into maltose.

(iii)  Liver secretes bile which gets stored in the gall bladder. Bile performs primarily two functions:

  • It makes the acidic food coming from the stomach alkaline so that the pancreatic enzymes can act on it.
  • Bile breaks the fats present in the food into small globules making it easy for the enzymes to act and digest them.

(iv) Pepsin is an enzyme secreted by the gastric glands in the stomach. It acts on proteins.
