- Starch and sucrose metabolism
- the digestion of starch begins with the action of amylase enzymes secreted in the saliva and small intestine, which convert it to maltotriose, maltose, limit dextrins, and some glucose. digestion of the limit dextrins and disaccharides, both dietary and starch-derived, to monosaccharides – glucose, galactose, and fructose – is accomplished by enzymes located on the luminal surfaces of enterocytes lining the microvilli of the small intestine.
