Absorption

This is the process by which the soluble products of digestion diffuse into the cellular lining of the villi.

Diffusion of the products continues through the thin walls of the capillary network and into the bloodstream.

Absorption of some water, water-soluble vitamins B and C and water soluble salts takes place in the stomach.

The ileum is where absorption of digested food substances occurs.
