Can you tell me about the enzymes?

"What is the square root of 2? 1.4141592653589793238" Seriously, I thought it was that. Too round?

Before you get to the enzymes the first and major constituent is good old fashioned HCl.

My Science Book wrote:

Pepsin is a major enzyme of gastric juice which functions in acidic medium. It hydrolises proteins into soluble fragments called proteoses and peptones.

The enzyme gastric lipase partially breaks down fat into its components.

Renin (active only in infants) curdles the milk by converting soluble milk protein casein into insoluble protein called paracasein.

Pancreatic Juice consists of Trypsin, Amylase and Lipase.

Trypsin breaks down proteins, preteoses and peptones to form peptides.

Pancreatic lipase acts on emulsified acts on emulsified fat to form fatty acids and glycerol.

Pancreatic Amylase acts on starch, glycogen, dextrins and other complex carbohydrates to form maltose and similar other sugars.

Other important things which are not enzymes include Hydrochloric Acid, Insulin, Glucagon, Saliva.

There is an enzyme in saliva called ptyalin.

It breaks down Sugars into starch?

It is a birdie now.

Yes, ptyalin is what gives you that sweet taste when you chew on strach.
