7 of 24
During digestion, __ molecules are broken down into __ molecules by e___ so they can be absorbed into bloodstream.
Large broken into small by enzymes
8 of 24
How is food digested in mouth?

9 of 24
Food then passes down the o___ (throat), into the stomach
10 of 24
In the stomach, enzymes digest p___
11 of 24
What does the stomach contain that helps enzymes with this?
Hydraulic acid
12 of 24
How do the stomach muscles help?
Churning action helps turn food to fluid, increasing surface area that enzymes can digest
13 of 24
The fluid then passes through the ____

20 of 24
Fluid now goes into the large intestine, where... (water)
Water is absorbed into blood
21 of 24
And lastly, faeces is released from the body. So to summarize, in the digestive system, __ food molecules are digested into __ molecules and the products of digestion are __ into the bloodstream
