ANSWER:Human feces is digested and undigested food. It is also human waste from the body such as dead blood cells and other toxins. It normally consists of about 66% digested and undigested food and about 33% live bacteria. This gives it its foul odor and it is crucial that you wash your hands afterward because this bacteria can make you very ill if ingested.

Starch digestion begins in the mouth. As food does not remain long in the mouth, only a little starch is digested by salivary amylase to maltose.

Sucrose is digested by sucrase into glucose and fructose.The end products of carbohydrate digestion are simple sugars (glucose, fructose, and galactose) which can be absorbed. Cellulose is not digested in the humans' gut.Yes.
