The amylopsin likewise in the pancreatic secretion acts upon the starch and dextrin, changing them to maltose.
amylopsin completes the digestion of starch that was begun by the saliva.
One part of amylopsin can change forty thousand times its bulk of starch to glucose.
amylopsin is much more powerful and rapid than the ptyalin of the saliva, especially on uncooked starch.
amylopsin, the starch-digesting enzym, appears to be very similar to ptyalin in its power to digest carbohydrates.
amylopsin am·y·lop·sin (ām'ə-lŏp'sĭn)
The starch-digesting amylase produced by the pancreas and present in pancreatic juice.
