Full Answer

A kosher kitchen also includes two dishwashers and two ovens in order to further prevent the mixing of meat and dairy. Sometimes a kosher kitchen has two refrigerators. Separate counters next to each dishwasher or sink are also ideal so that food can be prepared in a kosher fashion. Counter tops should be made from granite instead of porcelain or porous tile. The ovens in a kosher kitchen should also be self-cleaning so that they can be left on during the Sabbath hours, which are from sunset Friday to sunset Saturday.

    How do proteins get digested?

    A:

    According to Mansoura University, proteins get digested in a multi-step process involving hydrochloric acid and enzymes in the stomach, followed by more enzymes in the small intestine. These chemicals first break down the secondary and tertiary folding structures of proteins, then they break apart the peptide bonds between the amino acids that compose proteins. Individual amino acids are left at the end of this process, which are absorbed through intestinal walls.
