In brief: Digestive enzymes.
The islets of langerhans in the pancreas contain its endocrine cells that produce hormones that help control blood glucose levels: Alpha cells - glucagon, beta cells - Insulin and amylin, delta cells - somatostatin, pp cells - pancreatic polypeptide, epsilon cells -ghrelin.
The exocrine cells make digestive enzymes, like trypsinogen and chymotrypsinogen, to break down lipids and carbohydrates.
