produce an enzyme-poor "juice" containing mucus; found in the submucosa of the small intestine
secretion includes amylase, which begins starch digestion in the mouth

precents food from moving back into the small intestine once it has entered the large intestine
organ responsible for most food and water absorption//organ into which the stomach empties// organ that receives pancreatic juice and bile
large intestine (colon)
organ primarily involved in water absorption and feces formation
area between the teeth and lips/cheeks
blind sac hanging from the initial part of the colon
organ in which protein digestion begins
