1. Liver produces bile juice which is stored in the gall bladder. It helps to digest fats.
2. Pancreatic juice contains enzymes that combine with the juices of intestinal walls to form chyme. Pancreatic amylase helps in breaking down the starch. Pancreatic lipase breaks down fats. While Pancreatic proteases break down proteins.
