What do you call that has been removed to the gizzard?

I have to guess what you mean. What has been removed to the gizzard depends on which direction you mean. On one side it is the intestines and on the other side it is the throat. Birds have no teeth. The gizzard is used by birds to grind the food they eat, much as our teeth do. Birds will ingest small stones and sand to do this. The gizzard is a muscular organ and as it contracts it grinds the food eaten with the stones and sand. The food then passes on to the stomach. The material in the gizzard is food that is in the process of being ground and small stones and sand.
