How is the digestion of fats different from that of proteins and carbohydrates?
(1) Fat digestion occurs in the small intestine, and the digestion of proteins and carbohydrates occurs in the stomach
(2) Fats are absorbed into the cells as fatty acids and monoglycerides but are then modified for absorption into the blood; amino acids and glucose are not modified further
(3) Fats enter the hepatic portal circulation, but digested proteins and carbohydrates enter the lymphatic system
(4) Digested fats are absorbed in the large intestine, and digested proteins and carbohydrates are absorbed in the small intestine
