How are fats digested?
Answer: First of all, fats are neither digested in mouth nor in stomach. When the fats enter the small intestine, bile salts are secreted in the intestine that react on fats and emulsify them. These emulsified fats are treated by an enzyme named 'Lipase'. Lipase converts emulsified fats into fatty acids and glycerol.
