Organ That Hold Undigested Food
Unable to digest fibre. Excessive gas, abdominal distention, pressure and pain. Dwells in my system for hours. Fibrous food remain undigested in stool?
Fermented...: Many fibers, particularly the water insoluble kind, are readily fermented by your gut flora. Some people have certain intolerances to bean husks (try beano), to wheat/barley/rye (gluten sensitivity), &/or have a particularly active population in their gut of gas-forming organisms (try bifidobacter-containing probiotics). Maybe altered GI motility, ibs, air swallowing, maldigestion/malabsorption? ...Read more

I read that pasteurized milk, has its protein denatured, in which the structure changes and cant be absorbed in the intestines.is milk protein useless?
Milk: The caseins (one of the milk proteins) are stable to heat treatment. Typical high temperature short time (HTST) pasteurization conditions will not affect the functional and nutritional properties of the casein proteins. High temperature treatments can cause interactions between casein and whey proteins that affect the functional but not the nutritional properties. Hope this helps. ...Read more
Which digestive organ releases enzymes to help break down starches, proteins and fats in the small intestines?
If stool floats but sinks if broken into smaller pieces or squished, is that fat making it float or is that gas being released?Scared pancreatic cancer
why aren't the proteins we eat denatured in the acidic stomach? how are enzymes able to connect to the proteins, low stomach PH doesnt denature them?
Thoughtful question!: Enzymatic digestion occurs predominantly in the small bowel due to the action of "pancreatic juice" which contains many enzymes, including trypsinogen, chymotrypsinogen, elastase, carboxypeptidase, pancreatic lipase, nucleases & amylase. The pancreas also expresses bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) to neutralize stomach acid, thereby promoting enzymatic action. ...Read more

See pcp for evaluation, tests, options for treatment. In meantime, avoid fatty triggers. ...Read more
