why bile juice doesn't contain digestive enzyme?

Asked by  | 29th May, 2008, 09:40: AM

Expert Answer:

Bile doesn't contain enzymes since it does not digest any of the food components. Instead it emulsifies fats i.e. causes fats to form small droplets increasing surface area for enzyme action. This action does not require any enzymes. Bile is alkaline, aiding in the neutralization of chyme.
