Bile a digestive juice is secreted by the liver. It does not contain any digestive enzymes but still, it plays a very important role in the digestion of fats. Bile juice consists of bile salts such as bilirubin and biliverdin which are responsible for the breakdown of large fat globules into smaller globules. This breakdown helps the pancreatic enzymes to easily act on them. This process of breakdown of fats is known as the emulsification of fats. Bile juice is responsible for making the medium alkaline and activates the enzyme lipase.Answered by Pragya Singh | 1 year ago
