Esophagus a long straight tube that connects the pharynx to the stomach
Stomach the sac like, digestive organ between the esophagus and the small intestine that breaks down food into a liquid by the action of muscles, enzymes, and acids
Pancreas the organs that lie behind the stomach and that makes digestive enzymes and hormones that regulate sugar levels
Small intestine the organ between the stomach and large intestine where most of the breakdown of food happens and most of hte nutrients from food are absorbed
Liver the largest organ in the body; it makes bile, stores and filters blood, and stores excess sugars as glycogen
Gallbladder a sac-shaped organ that stores bile produced by the liver
Large intestine the wider and shorter portion of the intestine that removes water from mostly digested food and that turns the waste into semisolid feces, or stool.
