you had eaten boiled rice at lunch time .make a list of enzymes it will be acted upon and changes it undergoes before being absorbed in the small intestine

First salivary amylase present in mouth will act upon starch present in rice to convert it into maltose. In intestine maltase will act upon maltose and convert it into glucose. The glucose is then undergoes many metabolic processes to yield energy in the form of ATP.

enzymes it will be reacted upon -1. salivary amylase - maltose

2.amylase (from pancreatic juice ) -- dissacharides

3.disaccharidases ( from succus entericus)--- 1. maltase- glucose + glucose

2. lactase -- glucose + galactose

3. sucrase -- glucose + fructose

hope this helps you....
