How Is a Hamburger Digested?


A hamburger is digested beginning with the mechanical breakdown of the hamburger in the mouth through the chewing process. At this time, saliva is added to the mechanical digestion process and the chemical breakdown of the hamburger begins. Once swallowed, the hamburger is moved to the stomach to be mixed further with acids. It settles in the stomach and becomes a mush. Then, it moves to the small intestine where minerals, vitamins, and liquids are removed from the mush.
