compare and contrast the role of bile juice and pancreatic juice in human digestion.

Dear student.
Bile Pancreatic juice
Bile is a digestive juice secreted by the liver. The pancreas secretes pancreatic juice 
It does not contain any digestive enzymes, Pancreatic juice contains enzymes

Bile helps in breaking down large fat globules into smaller globules so that the digestive enzymes can easily act on them. This process is known as emulsification of fats. Bile juice also makes the medium alkaline and activates lipase.

Pancreatic juice:- The pancreas secretes pancreatic juice which contains enzymes like trypsin for digesting proteins and lipase for breaking down emulsified fats.
