What is the Role of Small Intestine in the Digestion of Food Components
Role of Small Intestine in the Digestion
In small intestine Liver and Pancreas play an important role for digestion of food.
Role of Liver:
- i) Liver is reddish brown organ present just below the diaphragm (under ribs) on right side of body.
- ii) Bile contain salts which convert large fat molecules into small droplets. This process is called emulsification.
iii) Bile juice also contains bile pigments, which excreted out with faeces. The colour of faeces is due to these pigments.
Role of Pancreas:
- i) It is leaf life organ present below the stomach.
- ii) Pancreas produces a juice called pancreatic juice which contain three enzymes.
- Amylase acts on undigested starches of the food and converts them into maltose.
- Trypsin breaks down proteins into peptides.
- Lipase splits fat into fatty acids and glycerol.
iii) If any food still remain undigested enzymes secreted by glands of small intestine help to digest it.
Lenders.Lenders can be conveniently divided into two groups: 1) shot-term lenders, and 2) long-term lenders. Short-term lenders (i.e. those who lend money for up to 12-month period) will normally be concerned with the ‘liquidity’ of the business. The term ‘liquidity’ refers to the availability of cash , or near-cash items such as short-term investments. Shot-term lenders will normally view liquidity as an important indicator of the ability of the business to pay short-term obligations when they fall due.
