The semi-solid mass which is produced after thoroughly mix up of food and gastric juice is called
The stomach stores the food for 4-5 hours. The food mixes thoroughly with the acidic gastric juice of the stomach by the churning movements of its muscular wall and is called the chyme.
The proenzyme pepsinogen, on exposure to hydrochloric acid gets converted into the active enzyme pepsin, the proteolytic enzyme of the stomach. Pepsin converts proteins into proteoses and peptones (peptides).
Which of the following component of food do not provide energy of body building?
Roughage is a component of food which do not provides energy or help in body building. Roughage helps in movement of food in alimentary canal.
The type of digestion which takes place within the cell is termed as
The mode of digestion which takes place inside the cell is called as intracellular digestion. Most of multicellular organism digest food inside the cell.
Intracellular digestion takes place in animals without a digestive tract, in which food items are brought into the cell for digestion.
In amoeba, digestion of food takes place inside
The mode of nutrition in amoeba is holozoic. Amoeba digests the food inside food vacuole that contain enzyme for digestion.
Which one is the largest gland in the human body?
Liver is the largest gland in the human body. Liver secretes bile juice that contains bile salt. Emulsification of fat occurs by the action of bile salt.
Saliva is released from
Saliva is released from salivary gland present in mouth. Saliva contains salivary amylase that helps in digestion of starch.
The inner walls of the small intestine have millions of small finger like projections called
The interior walls of the small intestine are tightly wrinkled into projections called circular folds that greatly increase their surface area. Microscopic examination of the mucosa reveals that the mucosal cells are organized into finger-like projections known as villi, which further increase the surface area.
The sharp teeth used for tearing food is called
Canines are sharp teeth used for tearing food. Canine is more prominent in carnivores to tear the meat.
The process of chewing of food is called
The process of chewing food is called mastication. Teeth and tongue help in mastication of food.
Longest part of human alimentary canal is
Human alimentary canal is about 9 meter long. Small intestine forms the largest part of meet. Most of digestion takes place in small intestine.
The movement of food in food pipe is called
The movement o food by regular contraction and expansion of food pipe is called peristaltic movement.
Bile is secreted from
Bile is secreted from liver that contain bile salt. Bile salt helps in emulsification of fat.
Biological catalyst that breakdown the food into simpler form is called
Enzymes are biological catalyst that breakdown the complex food into simple form. Enzymes are released from exocrine glands.
Small intestine contain small finger-like projections to absorb digested food is called
The mucosa is a mucous membrane. It is the innermost lining of the small intestine. It is made up of a:
The inner surface of the mucosa has many finger-like projections called villi. The villi increase the surface area of the small intestine, which helps it absorb digested food.
Absorption of water in alimentary canal takes place in
Oesophagus is also known as
The oesophagus is also called the gullet or food pipe. It is part of the digestive system, which is sometimes called the gastro-intestinal tract (GI tract). The oesophagus is a muscular tube about 25cm (10in) long. It connects your mouth to your stomach.
ORS stand for
ORS stands for Oral rehydration solution. It is used in case of dehydration to maintain water and salt levels in body.
Bile juice is stored in
Bile salts are one of the primary components of bile. Bile is a greenish-yellow fluid made by the liver and stored in our gallbladder.
Wall of stomach contains
The wall of stomach contains gastric glands which secretes gastric juice. Gastric juice contain pepsin, HCl and mucus.
Grass is rich in ________ a special kind of carbohydrate which can only be digested by ruminants.
Cellulose is a type of carbohydrate that can be digested by ruminants and not by humans.
Ruminants have a large sac-like structure called rumen between the oesophagus and the small intestine. The cellulose of the food is digested here by the action of certain bacteria which are not present in humans.
