The Alimentary Canal

Standard Grade Biology

can you sort out the statements into true and false
Can you sort out the statements into True and False?

Carbohydrates, proteins and fats are all made up of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen.

Fats are made up of smaller units called amino acids

Starch is a large carbohydrate molecule

Proteins are made up of one or more glucose molecules

Starch molecules can be broken down by amylase.

Proteins are important for the growth and repair of cells

can you name the 2 different ways we breakdown food in our bodies
Can you name the 2 different ways we breakdown food in our bodies?
  • Mechanical Digestion

-teeth

  • Chemical Digestion

-enzymes

-bile

-stomach acid

1 parts of the alimentary canal
1. Parts of The Alimentary Canal

The alimentary canal (or gut) is the tube within the body through which food passes and is processed in various ways

slide5
mouth

salivary glands

oesophagus

liver

stomach

pancreas

large intestine

small intestine

anus

2 role of the mouth
2. Role of the Mouth

Teeth assist the mechanical breakdown of food

Saliva is mixed with food during chewing

Saliva contains the enzyme amylase which starts the digestion of food

Salivary gland

Saliva contains mucus that keeps the mouth moist and lubricates food for easier swallowing

Salivary gland

Salivary gland

3 muscles of the alimentary canal
3. Muscles of the Alimentary Canal
  • Food has to be kept moving along the alimentary canal whilst being mixed with various juices
  • These actions are brought about by muscles in the walls of the canal over which a person has little or no conscious control
3 peristalsis
3. Peristalsis

The squeezing action of muscles that is used to move food along the alimentary canal

digestive enzymes
Digestive Enzymes
  • What do the following enzymes breakdown?
  • What do they break the large moleculs down into?
  • Amlyases
  • Lipases
  • Proteases
digestion
Digestion

‘the breakdown of large insoluble molecules into soluble molecules’

digestion and digestive juices

Saliva

GASTRIC JUICE

Bile

PANCREATIC JUICE

INTESTINAL JUICE

Digestion and Digestive Juices
  • SALIVA
  • Salivary amylase
  • GASTRIC JUICE
  • Hydrochloric acid
  • Pepsin (protease)

Bile

  • PANCREATIC JUICE
  • Pancreatic lipase
