Question

Although bile juice has not digestive enzyme, it is still considered to be very important during digestion of food. Give two reasons..!


Solution

Functions of Bile juice is an absorption:

* It helps the body to absorb the breakdown products of fat in the gut. Bile salts bind with lipids to form micelles. This is then absorbed through the intestinal mucosa.
* Emulsify fats and break it down into small particles.
* It kills germs present in the food.
* It has an important part in the absorption of the fat-soluble vitamins.
* Bile also carries excess cholesterol out of the body and 'dumps' it into the gastrointestinal tract where it can be passed out with other waste matter.
* This reduces the acid content of the chyme.
