Vegetarian Enzyme tablets, are dietary supplements of vegetable-source enzymes (suitable for vegetarians) which are specific for starches, proteins, fats, and cellulose, a dietary fiber.

The pancreas supplies the major digestive enzymes that catalyze the breakdown of starches (carbohydrates), proteins, and fats, so that the breakdown products can be absorbed in the upper small intestine. Some carbohydrate digestion takes place in the mouth by salivary amylase, but pancreatic amylase is the major carbohydrate-digesting enzyme.

Amylases break down starches to maltose and maltotriose, which are further hydrolyzed into glucose by the disaccharidases of the mucosal cells, and then absorbed. Although cellulose is indigestible by pancreatic and intestinal enzymes, the microflora within the large intestine may degrade it and produce uncomfortable symptoms in the process. Lipases break down triglycerides into monoglycerides and free fatty acids, which are efficiently absorbed in the upper small intestine. Vegetarian Enzyme provides catalytically active enzymes specific for fats, carbohydrates and proteins, similar in effectiveness to pancrease-derived digestive enzymes
