Please find below the solution to the asked query  

It takes longer time to digest fats because:
  • They are more complex than carbohydrates and proteins. It is difficult for our body to break them down into a simpler form. 
  • Fat digestion begins in the small intestine while digestion of carbohydrates begins as soon as they are consumed.
