What is chyme?

Chyme is the semi-liquid formed in the stomach after solid food is broken down by hydrochloric acid. The chyme moves into the small intestine (duodenum) where it is further broken down by digestive enzymes. Most digestive enyzymes occur in the duodenum and are received from the pancreas.
