Pancreas

 

The pancreas releases pancreatic juice rich in enzymes for digesting carbohydrates, fat and protein in addition to bicarbonate and water which neutralize the chyme coming from the stomach, which is basically acidic. Food in the small intestine and the hormones cholecystokinin and secretin help to stimulate the pancreas to release more pancreatic juice.
