Lingual lipase is a water soluble enzyme that

primarily catalyses the breakdown of fats and converts them to free fatty

acids, monoglycerides and diglycerides. They play an important role in food

digestion.





Lingual lipase which was discovered in 1976 is a member of a family of digestive enzymes called triacylglycerol lipases, that use the catalytic triad of aspartate, and serine to hydrolyze medium- and long-chain

triglycerides into partial glycerides and free fatty acids.
