The amylase enzyme is secreted by the pancreas into the duodenum/starting point of the small intestine and this enzyme amylase breaks down the carbohydrates(complex substances) to maltose/sugars(simple substances).
this amylase will be active only in the basic medium thats the reason the carbohydrates are not broke down in  the stomach(acid medium).
