  • 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.
