D
Saliva

Solution

The correct option is A Bile
Bile does not contain enzymes like other secretions from the gastrointestinal tract. Instead it has bile salts (acids), which can : emulsify fats and break it down into small particles. This is a detergent-like action of bile. Helps the body 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.
