Proteins obtained from food in the body undergo complete hydrolysis under the action of peptidases. In the stomach, proteins are partially broken down by pepsin. Further cleavage occurs in the small intestine under the action of pancreatic enzymes (trypsin, chymotrypsin, elastase, carboxypeptidase) and intestinal mucosal enzymes (aminopeptidase and dipeptidase). There is a complete hydrolytic breakdown of food proteins to amino acids, which are absorbed.
