how is protein digested in our body?

Expert Answer:

Proteins are digested in our body with the help of protein digesting enzymes like trypsin and pepsin, which break down the complex proteins into peptides and then into amino acids. Such enzymes are present in gastric juice, pancreatic juice and intestinal juice.
