  • The stomach is more of a holding cell at a prepping stage in the digestive process.
  • The foods you eat aren't digested in the order you eat them.
  • All of the food goes to the stomach, and the stomach churns everything together.
  • The stomach breaks down the collection of food into particles known as chyme.
