Digestive Enzymes Our food is made up of: • Carbohydrates: Bread, Pasta, Potato • Protein: Meat, Nuts, Lentils • Fats: Butter, Milk Our body needs to digest them – turn them into a form that can be absorbed into the blood and used by cells. Enzymes make this possible. Look closely at the 3 digestion equations: Enzymes that work on carbohydrates: Amylase + Starch Enzyme (in pasta, bread (in saliva) carbohydrate) Maltose (a form of sugar that can be absorbed by the body ) Enzymes that work on Proteins: Protease + Proteins Enzyme (eg. In meat, nuts) (in stomach) Amino Acids (the body can absorb them and use them) Enzymes that work on Fats: Lipase enzyme + Fats (secreted by pancreas) (Butter, Milk) Enzyme action animation Fatty Acids + Glycerol (can be absorbed into body) This powerpoint was kindly donated to www.worldofteaching.com http://www.worldofteaching.com is home to over a thousand powerpoints submitted by teachers.
