WHAT IS THE ROLE OF GALL BLADDER AND PANCREAS IN DIGESTION?
Asked by akash.verma | 05 Jun, 2008, 08:55: PM
Expert Answer

Pancreas secrestes pancreatic juice which contains enzymes like trypsin for digesting proteins, amylase for digesting starch and lipase for breaking down emulsified fats.

Bicarbonate, secreted by pancreas,  is critical to neutralizing the acid coming into the small intestine from the stomach

The gallbladder stores about 50 ml of bile, which is released when food containing fat enters the digestive tract.

After being stored in the gallbladder, the bile becomes more concentrated than when it left the liver, increasing its potency and intensifying its effect on fats.
