What will happen to protein digestion as the medium of intestine is gradually
rendered alkaline ?
A. 1) The food coming from the stomach to intestine is acidic in nature.
2) Bile and pancreatic juices render the internal condition of the intestine gradually to a basic or alkaline one.
3) In the alkaline medium, pancreatic enzyme trypsin can act on the food and digests the proteins.
4) The enzymes present in the intestinal juice complete the digestion of proteins into amino acids.
