Where and how fat is digested in human beings?
The digestion of the fat begins in the stomach where it is partially broken down and is fully digested in the intestine. The gastric juice consists of gastric lipase which can convert some fats into monoglycerides and fattyacids. The bile salts have the capacity to reduce surface tension of fat droplets and bring about emulsification. As a result fine droplets of fat are formed. The main fat digesting enzymes is pancreatic liphase.
