1. Salivary glands


2. Gastric Glands


3. Pancreas.


Secretions of the glands are:


SALIVARY GLAND- Salivary glands are present in the mouth. It secretes the saliva which contains the enzyme salivary amylase. This enzyme starts the digestion or breakdown of carbohydrates.


GASTRIC GLANDS – Gastric glands are present in the wall of the stomach. It secretes the hydrochloric acid, protein-digesting enzyme pepsin, and mucus.

function.
