liver
where bile is produced. bile neutralises stomach acid and emulsifies fats

gall bladder
where bile is stored, before it is released into the small intestine

large intestine
where excess water is absorbed from the food

rectum
where the faeces are stored- before they say hey through the anus

small intestine
produces protease, amylase and lipase enzymes to complete digestion. this is also where the digested food is absorbed out of the digestive system into the blood
