The undigested food is stored in letter A, which means that the large intestine is the right answer to this question. Some people refer to the large organ like the large bowel. This is the place where water is absorbed, and the waste material will be stored as feces.

This is where the feces will wait before they can be adequately removed from the body through the process of excretion. The waste materials are composed of excess food products, toxins, and other items that the body does not need. If the body is exposed to nutrients, it is likely that these nutrients are already absorbed to be used by the body for various purposes.

The answer to this is A. The undigested food may be stored in the large intestine before it can be completely removed from the body. Digestion takes place the moment that you place the food in your mouth. Your different organs are doing its best in order to remove the nutrients and make sure that the body is properly nourished.

The nourishment that you will get will highly depend on the food that you eat. The healthier your food is, the better it will be for your body. By the time that the food reaches the large intestine, this means that the nutrients have already been removed. In the large intestine, the feces will start to become dehydrated so that they will not come out in a fluid form.
