Let’s take a look at how we digest carbohydrates.
Fats are a bit more confusing, but still cool!
In the world of babies…
- Rennin: rennin turns curds out of milk protein (casein, which some people are allergic to).
- Lactase: lactase breaks down lactose (from milk) into simple sugars: glucose and galactose.
- Salivary lipase: salivary lipase helps break down fats. Breast milk is very high in fats, rather than protein.
