Pancreatic fluid or juice contains digestive enzymes that pass to the small intestine where they help to further break down the carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids (fats) in the chyme. Pancreatic fluid is alkaline in nature due to the high concentration of bicarbonate ions that makes it useful in neutralizing the acidic gastric acid, allowing for effective enzymatic action. Pancreatic juice secretion is regulated by the hormones secretin and cholecystokinin. It is produced by the walls of the duodenum upon detection of acid food, proteins, fats, and vitamins.
Therefore, the correct answer is option C.
