There are only two types of Amylase in our body. One of them is present in saliva and is called salivary amylase. The other one is produced by pancreas. We call them pancreatic amylases. This pancreatic amylase, together with other digestive enzymes, is secreted into the small intestine through a system of exocrine ducts.
Amylase is an enzyme that breaks starch down into sugar. For digesting fats and proteins we have other enzymes in our body.
