Essentially everything you eat goes through a similar digestive process. Many people believe digestion begins in the stomach, where there is a physical breakdown of food and gastric acids are added.

Amylase is present in the saliva where it begins the chemical process of digestion - contrary to popular belief digestion does not start lower in the gastrointestinal tract (GI tract). Amylase has the responsibility of helping your body process carbohydrates into simple sugars.
