Example text

Sodium hydrogencarbonate (bicarbonate) neutralizes the acidity of the fluid arriving from the stomach to a pH of B8. Pancreatic fluid also contains a-amylase that continues the hydrolysis of starch into glucose and oligosaccharides. The latter include linear and branched structures that are not absorbed into the bloodstream without further hydrolysis to glucose. Glucose is only a very minor product of endo-hydrolases, such as a-amylase which operates during the initial stages of digestion, so further enzymic processes are definitely required.
