. Which digestive secretion does not contain any enzyme but it is important. Discuss
Ans: The digestive secretion is bile. Though bile does not contain enzyme it is important for the following reasons :
(i) The partially digested food from the stomach is acidic and has to be made alkaline for pancreatic enzymes to act.
(ii) Bile brings about emulsification of fat, i.e., bile salts break down larger fat globules into smaller globules increasing the efficiency of enzyme action.
