Briefly depict how carbohydrates, fats, and proteins are digested and absorbed.

For this project, do the following: 1. Briefly depict how carbohydrates, fats, and proteins are digested and absorbed. Start with the events that occur in the mouth and work your way through the gastrointestinal (GI) tract by explaining what happens to each macronutrient in the stomach, small intestine, and large intestine. Include the contributions of the liver, gallbladder, and pancreas to digestion, and be specific about which molecules are absorbed. For example, carbohydrates must be broken down into monosaccharides in order to be absorbed. You will need to cite the sources you are referencing. While you can use your textbook, you should also include at least one other external source (preferably from a PCC Library Database.) See the PCC Nutrition LibGuide for links to databases. Remember when accessing off campus, you’ll need your PCC Username and password. 2. Your description can either be a series of 3 flowcharts or a compare/contrast table that track the basic digestion of macronutrients. You can download and use this Compare & Contrast Template.docxPreview the document if you wish. Please write in complete sentences. There is to note that ‘flow chart sequence’ is a little out-of-order; it should read (anatomically speaking): MOUTH, STOMACH, LIVER, GALLBLADDER, PANCREAS, SMALL INTESTINE, LARGE INTESTINE. 3. Then, create a short 1-2 page double-spaced written summary of how all 3 macronutrients are digested and absorbed, including a discussion of the events in each compartment of the GI tract. This summary must be in your own words and must include an APA citation to your credible scientific sources.
