Correct Answer: (1) digestive and circulatory

In human digestive system, the fats in foods are emulsified with digestive secretions containing lipase, an enzyme that hydrolyzes at least part of the glycerides. The glycerol, partial glycerol esters, fatty acids, and some glycerides are then absorbed through the intestine and are at least partly recombined to produce glycerides and phospholipids. The fat, in the form of droplets, is transported in the blood to points of utilization or storage.
