After reading through the Zimmerman and Snow text in Chapter 3(pgs. 128-141) on Macronutrient Digestion, you will use the following terms to describe the processes of digestion and absorption. Just to make it more creative, challenging, and personal, you will use paired terms from the following list to describe the entire process from ingestion to elimination. Choose two terms from each section to write one sentence that describes that part of the digestion process. Please note that all the words in the list are important to know for exam purposes so make sure you read about all of them. Another valuable tool to use for your research is this video link to the Khan Academy: https://www.khanacademy.org/partner-content/stanford-medicine/growth-and-metabolism/v/digesting-food.
Example-If the words to be used together are carbohydrate and protein, my sentence would be as follows:
“The delicious sandwich I just ingested and am now digesting through my gastrointestinal system was made up of my favorite complete protein, eggs, and a healthy and fiber filled complex carbohydrate, whole wheat bread. “
Choose two words from each of the following sections to construct your sentences for a total of 6 sentences:
Section A: choose two of the following terms to create one sentence describingthe early steps of ingestion.
chemical digestion, mechanical digestion, mastication, bolus, deglutition
Section B: choose two of the following terms to create one sentence describing the early steps of digestion.
salivary glands, salivary amylase, salivary lipase, peristalsis, epiglottis, esophagus
Section C: choose two of the following terms to create one sentence describing themiddle stages of digestion.
gastric juice, hydrochloric acid, pepsin, intrinsic factor, gastric lipase, chyme
Section D: choose two of the following terms to create one sentence describing thelater stages of digestion.
gall bladder, pancreatic proteases, lipases, pyloric sphincter, duodenum
Section E: choose two of the following terms to create one sentence describing theprocess of absorption.
villi, microvilli, enterocyte, lacteal, diffusion
Section F: choose two of the following terms to create one sentence describing theprocess of elimination.
cecum, ileocecal valve, feces, water, rectum, vitamin B12, bacteria
***By constructing these one sentence descriptions, it will show your level of understanding of the content. Your grade will be evaluated on how well you constructed your sentence and if you properly and thoroughly described the terms in the process. Please make sure you BOLDFACE your two terms in each sentence**
