As the resulting slurry, known as "chyme," exits the stomach and enters the duodenum, it stimulates the secretion of the hormone secretin, which in turn, signals the pancreas to release trypsin, chymotrypsin, and pancreatin, a mixture of several enzymes, including proteases, amylase, and lipase (See Table 1 above.), which play important roles in extracting nutrients as they further break down proteins, carbohydrates, and fats.
