We will begin our trip through the mouth where all the food gets chewed up and then swallowed. food normally spends one minute in the mouth. We will then travel down the oesophagus which is approximately 25 centimeters long into the stomach. The stomach is a J-shaped organ that has a capacity of about 2 liters. Muscles in the stomach walls churn food. Then through to the liver which is 1.5 kg It stores vitamins and minerals, including iron, which is needed for the production of red blood cells.
