Each of these organs have their own function.Mouth:Breaks down foodTeeth: Incisors (front teeth)- cut a piece of foodCanines- tear and shred foodMolars (back teeth)- grind and crush foodEsophagus:Helps food to the stomachStomach: Contain acids that help digest foodSmall Intestine: Absorbs nutrients from foodLarge Intestine:Absorbs water and breaks down wasteNutrients:Turns into energy for bodyVilli:Contains blood vessels that absorb nutrientsAll of these organs are primary organs. There are also secondary organs which include the liver, gall bladder, and pancreas. They too have there own functions.Liver: Creates bile which secretes into the small intestine Gall Bladder:Stores and recycles excess bilePancreas:Secretes enzymes into small intestine to complete chemical digestion Digestive System Mechanical and Chemical Digestion Mechanical: Mechanical Digestion is the breaking down of large pieces of food into smaller pieces of food. It's starts from the chewing of food in your mouth, and continues through muscular mixing of food in the stomach and intestines. Bile mechanically breaks down fats into small globules. Chemical: Chemical digestion is the substances which our body needs cannot be absorbed into the blood until they have been broken down into small, soluble chemicals. This starts in the mouth with the salivary glands and continues into the stomach with the acids. Absorption of Food The absorption of food during digestion is when food is broken down into nutrients, absorbed by the villi, and used as energy for the body. This usually begins in the stomach with small molecules. Most of this process takes place in the small intestine. Pathway of Food Throughout Digestion
