What Are Digestive Enzymes

Digestive enzymes are special proteins that help your body break down food. There are three basic food enzymes, each specifically targeting the digestion of a different kind of food molecule:

• Protease: helps digest proteins,
• Amylase: helps digest starch, and
• Lipase: helps digest fats. 

In addition to these basic enzymes, there are four specialty food enzymes:
• Lactase, for the sugar called “lactose”, which is found in dairy products,
• Maltase, for the sugar called “maltose”,
• Sucrase, for the sugar found in fruits, as well as the granulated sugar you put in your coffee, and
• Cellulase, which helps us digest cellulose fibers.
