The pancreatic liquid of secretion composes of digestive bicarbonate and enzymes: amylase, lipase, protease are transferred along a conduit located in its center the pancreatic channel of Wirsung
That it is connected to the cholédoque channel, which comes from the liver while transporting the bile
Once the food left the stomach, pancreatic juices and the bile help to continue their digestion in the duodenum
