correct

Absorption of fatty acids and glycerol: Fatty acids and glycerol are insoluble in water thus they can’t enter in bloodstream directly. In intestinal lumen, bile salts and phospholipids incorporate fatty acids and glycerol into small, spherical water-soluble droplets known as micelles. Fat soluble vitamins and sterols along with fatty acids and glycerol are absorbed by diffusion by the help of micelles into intestinal cells, where they are resynthesized in the endoplasmic reticulum and are converted into small droplets known as chylomicrons. Later most of them released into lymph present in lacteals (lymphatic capillaries).
