Chemistry - Protein - digestion

Protein - digestion

Proteins, fats and carbohydrates are characterised by the peptide, ether
and ester functional groups respectively. Formed in the condensation
reactions that produce these major nutrients, these functional groups are
the sites of the hydrolysis reactions characteristic of digestion.
Digestion of the major nutrients is necessary because the molecules and
polymer chains are too large to pass directly from the digestive tract into
the blood.
