what are the functions of bile juice?

Expert Answer:

Bile helps to emulsify fats (increasing surface area to help enzyme action), and thus aids in their absorption in the small intestine. It also makes the acidic food coming from the stomach alkaline, so as to enable the action of pancreatic enzymes.
