What is a common source of simple sugar?

Anything made with four, especially white flour (non whole grain) will metabolize as glucose, beginning with the process of mastication (chewing). There's an old experiment with a cracker before and after having been chewed and iodine. When the starch exists as starch -- the cracker turns blue. When it's been changed by the enzymes in the saliva to glucose apparently it doesn't change color. Search "glucose iodine" for more information about this.


Where does the digestion start in the digestive system?

Actually, as is often not included as part of the digestive system, digestion begins almost the second one puts something, for instance a cracker, into their mouth. Imagine this cracker sitting on the tongue and then being chewed and chomped by the incisors in the teeth and by the mouth. The movement of one's jaw further enhances digestive enzymes, or saliva, that begins the breakdown of particles in the mouth. In other words, digestion starts with the help of the salivary glands in the mouth.

How do rhino eat their food?

Rhinos first chew it up. The chewed food ferments in the first chamber of the stomach. Then the rhino burps it up and chews it again. The substance is called cud. After the rhino swallows, the food moves to the fourth chamber of the stomach, where enzymes work on the twice chewed food to continue digestion.

Body systems that use enzymes?

This is a really good question. However, I only know one system that uses enzymes, and that happens to be the digestive system. In your mouth,where the digestive system takes place, enzymes work together and forms a soft liquid chemical(saliva) that makes the chewed food slide easily down your esophagus. There are also enzymes that are resonsible for digesting fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. Without the enzymes, we would all have trouble digesting. I hope this information will help!
