How are proteins digested?
Answer: At first, an enzyme known as Proteases acts on large protein molecules and convert them into polypeptides. Polypeptides move to small intestine, as they move into small intestine pancreas secrete an enzyme known as Trypsin. Trypsin converts polypeptides into amino acids. These amino acids are absorbed into blood stream and transported to their destination.
