Expert Answer:

Emulsification of fats refers to the breakdown of large fat globules into smaller, uniformly distributed particles. It is accomplished mainly by bile salts in the small intestine.
Emulsification is the first preparatory step for chemical digestion of fats by specific enzymes (lipases).
