Chyme

In what parts of the alimentary canal can you find chyme? (Is this image gross?)

Comments

Wait...is this stuff real??!! The bolus will turn into chyme while in the stomach and then into the duodenum. Correct?

Yes, it's real.

Thats gross that its real. . .i thought it was just a model. isn't in the stomach because of the chemical thats found in the stomach?

Yes, the chyme is real, but it is in a plastic tube of some sort in this image. It is chyme--my friend sent me the image from her pathology lab.

Chyme appears in the stomach but is dispensed to the small intestines.
