Digestive enzyme products are the most effective treatment for pancreatic insufficiency. These preparations can include enzymes from fresh hog pancreas (pancreatin) or vegetarian sources, such as bromelain and papain (protein-digesting enzymes from pineapple and papaya, respectively); and fungal enzymes.

They are definitely more resistant to digestive secretions and have a broader range of activity. Simply follow the label instructions for the proper dosage.
