Macronutrients Writing Assignment

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.

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.docx if you wish. Please write in complete sentences.

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 external source.
