Solution

Digestion of proteins is initiated by pepsin in the stomach, but the bulk of protein digestion is due to the pancreatic proteases. Pancreatic Lipase is a major component of dietary fat. Amylase secreted by pancreas helps in digestion of carbohydrates. Trypsin is also produced by the pancreas in an inactive form called trypsinogen.
