Bile is formed in the _____ and stored in the _____.

Answer liver; gallbladder

Bile is stored in the gallbladder to help process fats that enter the small intestine. This is why some people who have had their stomach removed must reduce the fat content of the individual meals they consume. However, there are other people who have had their gallbladder removed who do not have the need to reduce the fat content of their meals. This is because, for them, the liver will produce sufficient bile so that they can process fats even without the bile that would have been stored in their gallbladder.
