The bulk of fat digestion takes place in the large intestine. Bile released from the gallbladder helps to break up large fat globules into smaller ones, and amylase released from the pancreas cleaves the fats to fatty acids and other small lipids. Absorption of these small lipids occurs via the Na+-fatty acid cotransport mechanism in the small intestine.
