Nutrition Name Digestive system assignment For this assignment you will follow the path of a bean burrito through the digestive tract. Your bean burrito is wrapped in a flour tortilla with grilled veggies, rice, cheese, sour cream, and green Tabasco sauce. Your answers must be typed and either turned in directly to me or emailed to schwendemann@iowacentral.edu as a Word document file. In your email use the Subject heading "Digestive Assignment”. 1. Trace the path of your burrito through the alimentary canal by naming the structures it will pass through. Add the following sphincters: lower esophageal (aka cardiac), pyloric, ileocecal, internal and external anal. This should be a relatively straightforward outline of structures. 2. Outline where the different macromolecules (carbohydrates, lipids, etc.) that comprise the different parts of the burrito are digested (or, in the case of some molecules, not digested). Again, this should be an outline with little detail. 3. Outline where and how the different macromolecules are absorbed (or not). Another question you can answer with an outline with little detail. 4. Trace the path again to explain how accessory organs play a role in digestion. Your answers should include information about how the different parts of the burrito will be digested. Address the specific secretions released by these organs. Include details about any enzymes, hormones, or other secretions released (explain what they break down, how they signal other actions in the digestive tract, etc.). This is not straightforward or “bare bones” and I expect very detailed responses! Start with saliva in the mouth, move to the stomach (explain the enzymes, hormones, and other secretions), then end in the small intestine (remember that the gallbladder and pancreas empty into the duodenum). 5. Define the following: hypertrophic pyloric stenosis, hiatal hernia, Barrett's esophagus, pancreatitis, and Crohn's disease. 6. List the metabolic functions of the liver.

DIGESTIVE SYSTEM: THE PATHWAY FOR FOOD
Digestive System: The Pathway for Food
1. Alimentary Canal “The Pathway for Burrito”
The Alimentary canal parts that are the pathway for the burrito includes:


Mouth



Esophagus



Stomach



Small intestine



Large intestine rectum

a) Large intestine: its function is to absorb water and hold feces.
b) Rectum refers to the area where feces are held and takes 1 day for the food to reach at
this point.
2. An outline Where different Macromolecules of Burrito are Digested
The burrito contains carbohydrates (rice), vitamins, proteins, fats, RNA and DNA. Thus, the
digestion takes in:
a) Carbohydrates are taken in form of amylose and glycogen. Thus, Amylases hydrolyze
helps in breaking down amylose and glycogen to disaccharides and polysaccharides
respectively. This takes in the small intestine as the enzymes in small intestine...
