The Alimentary Canal

HideShow resource information
Mouth
1) Salivary glands in the mouth produce amylase enzyme in the saliva 2) Teeth break down food mechanically
1 of 9
Oesophagus
The muscular tube connecting the mouth and the stomach
2 of 9
Stomach
1) Pummels the food with its muscular walls 2) It produces the protease enzyme, pepsin 3) Produces hydrochloric acid for two reasons a) to kill bacteria b) to give the right pH for the protease enzyme to work (pH2 - acidic)
3 of 9
Liver
Where bile is produced
4 of 9
Gall bladder
Where bile is stored
5 of 9
Pancreas
Produces protease, amylase and lipase enzymes. It releases these into the small intestine
6 of 9
Small intestine
1) Produces protease, amylase and lipase enzyme to complete digestion 2) This is also where the nutrients are absorbed out of the alimentary canal into the body
7 of 9
Large intestine
Where excess water is absorbed from the food
8 of 9
Anus
Where faeces leave your body
