ETYM Latin chymus chyle, Greek chylos juice, from chylein to pour: cf. French chyme. Related to Chyle.
Partially digested food. Semiliquid partly digested food leaving stomach.
General term for the stomach contents. Chyme resembles a thick creamy fluid and is made up of partly digested food, hydrochloric acid, and a range of enzymes.
The muscular activity of the stomach churns this fluid constantly, continuing the mechanical processes initiated by the mouth. By the time the chyme leaves the stomach for the duodenum, it is a smooth liquid ready for further digestion and absorption by the small intestine.
A semiliquid mass of partially digested food that passes from the stomach through the pyloric sphincter into the duodenum.
