Where are lipids digested if at all?

Yes lipids are digested, Bile released from the liver into the small intestines breaks down Triglycerides into its monomers also well as neutralize pH

Where carbohydrates lipids and proteins are digested and which secretions are used to digest each of these?

Carbohydrates and proteins are digested in the stomach. Carbs require several enzymes to be digested, such as the enzyme salivary amylase (secreted in the mouth); digestion ultimately occurs at the level of the stomach. Proteins are also digested in the stomach, but require a general class of enzymes called proteases in order to be digested. Lipids are digested in the duodenum, the first portion of the small intestine. The secretion of lipase enzymes is necessary to complete this task.

Lipids are digested into what end products?

Lipids are broken down by the enzyme lipase into glycerol and fatty acids.

What are Lipids turned into once digested?

Lipids are fats so they are either stored as fat or used as energy.

What are the smaller molecules made when protein carbohydrate and fats are digested?

Protein is digested to form amino acids. Lipids are digested to fatty acids. Carbohydrates are digested to glucose and other simple sugars.

What organic molecules are chemically digested in the small intestine?


What macromolecules are digested chemically by enzymes in pancreatic juice?

Proteins, Starch and Lipids

What four polymers are digested in the small intestine?

Carbohydrates Lipids Proteins Nucleic Acids

Why lipids are not digested inside the stomach?

becuase the body stores them for later AKA FAT! Because the enzymes needed to digest lipids are not found in the stomach.

Name 4 polymers that are digested in the small intestine?

proteins, carbohydrates, nucleic acids and lipids.

How do lipids move through the body so they can be digested and absorbed?

In order for lipids to move through the bloodstream they must combine with proteins to form lipoproteins. liquids are spelt liquids not lipids Lipids is correct. The question is not liquids. Also, it is spelled not spelt!

Do lipids need to be digested before they can be absorbed?

Yes- to be more specific they are "emulsified" by bile, before it is absorbed.

What enzyme digests lipids?

Lipids are digested by lipases.A lipase is an enzyme that catalyzes the breakdown of a lipid (triglyceride) molecule into one molecule of glycerol and three molecules of fatty acid.

In which part of the digestive system do lipids get digested?

In the stomach with the enzyme pepsin, and further in the early section of the small intestine.

What is the mechanism of the hydrolysis of lipid?

The mechanism of the hydrolysis of lipid is known as catabolism of the lipids. This is a process through which lipids are digested and broken down to one molecule of glycerol and three molecules of fatty acids.

Where is the bile kept in the liver?

Bile is stored in the gall bladder and helps break down lipids in the food being digested.

Where are carbohydrates lipids and proteins digested?

Carbohydrate digestion begins in the oral cavity the moment the food is chewed. Salivary amylases begin working on the carbohydrates present in the food. The remaining carbohydrates are digested in the stomach gastric juice Proteins are digested in the gastric juices of the stomach. This acidic environment degrades proteins. Also, trypsin and chymotrypsin act on proteins within the acidic stomach environment and result in protein degradation Lipids are mainly digested in the large intestine through a process called beta oxidation.

Does protein produce a lot of ATP?

No, the most energy comes from lipids and carbohydrates. Proteins are mainly digested for their raw materials, not their energy.
