Definition of chyme :
1. a semiliquid mass of partially digested food that passes from the stomach through the pyloric sphincter into the duodenum
2. The pulpy mass of semi- digested food in the small intestines just after its passage from the stomach. It is separated in the intestines into chyle and excrement. See Chyle.
- Food leaving the small intestine is called chyme, a semi- liquid mixture of fiber, undigested bits, indigestible bits, and the remains of digestive enzymes. - "How and When to Be Your Own Doctor", Dr. Isabelle A. Moser with Steve Solomon.
- Calves, when fattening, are often fed so injudiciously, that the stomach is incapable of reducing the food to chyme and chyle: the consequence is, that a large amount of carbonic acid gas is evolved. - "The American Reformed Cattle Doctor", George Dadd.
- Nature, in effecting this process, first reduces the food in the stomach to a state of pulp, under the name of chyme, which passes into the intestines, and is there divided into two principles, each distinct from the other. - "The Book of Household Management", Mrs. Isabella Beeton.
