- The end product of fats are fatty acids, glycerols and monoglycerides.
- Among these the glycerol is soluble in water while fatty acids and monoglycerides are insoluble in water.
- In the intestine the fatty acids, monoglycerides and bile salts aggregates to form mixed micelles which are soluble in water.
- The hydrophobic fatty acida are monoglycerides from the core while hydrophilic bile salt from the periphery of mix miceles.
- These diffuses in the cell of villi where fatty acids and monoglycerides combine together to form triglycerides and becomes enveloped by a layer of bitalico protein called chylamycromes.
- These enters into lacteal which carry it towards the hepatic portal system In the thoracic region.
- This system opens in the liver where bile salts are separated and used again to form the bile and triglycerides are transplanted to different body tissue.
