How is fat absorbed in blood?



Absorption of fat take place in the following ways
(i) Digested fat is absorbed in the small intestine.
(ii) Bile salts break up bigger molecules of fat into small droplets called micelles that move into intestinal mucosa.
(iii) They are reformed onto small protein coated fat globules called chylomicrons.
(iv) These are transported to lymph vassels (lacteales) in this villi.
(v) These lymph vessels ultimately release the absorbed substances into blood stream.
