What are the digestive juices in the mechanical digestion?

Mechanical digestion is the same thing as chewing, or mastication. It does not need any digestive juices, because that is considered chemical digestion. Chemical digestion in the mouth during chewing is mainly by the aid of saliva which has, among other enzymes, salivary amylase which initiates carbohydrate digestion.

Functions of the digestive enzymes amylase?

Amylase is a specific type of carbohydrate-digesting enzyme. It digests the complex polysaccharide starch into the simpler sugar, maltose. Amylase is secreted by the salivary glands, as well as in the small intestine.


The digestive enzyme amylase is normally secreted into which two regions of the digestive tract?

Where does the digestion of food occur?

The digestion of food starts in the mouth where it is masticated. Saliva is added to form a bolus. This is the start of chemical digestion. Salivary Amylase breaks downs carbs. Food then goes down oesophagus ito stomach where digestion continues. The stomach muscles churn the food with hydrochloric acid and lubricates it with mucus. This then forms a substance called chyme. The hydrochloric acid deactivates salivary amylase and neutralises bacteria. There is a lot more to it but just remember that it starts in the mouth.
