    The digestive system breaks down proteins, fats and all carbohydrates (except glucose and fructose which can be absorbed as they are) into smaller molecules which can then be absorbed along with vitamins and minerals.

    They don't create all that stuff they break it down so I would believe it would be A since it breaks everything down
