Hello doctor, want to ask for example, For example, I eat market snacks that use coconut as one of the ingredients, either grated or grated juice (coconut milk). What I know is that food containing coconut is easily stale if left to stand at room temperature. Well, let’s say the cake that will be eaten in 1 hour will be stale, while I have eaten big and full stomach, I read that the food in the stomach is digested more than 6 hours. If I eat the cake, does it mean I eat stale food?

1 Answer:

Hello Sonacore,


Every food will be digested by the body's digestive system so that it can be converted into nutrients needed by the body. The digestive tract starts from the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and large intestine. In each phase, food will get treatment, namely:

Mouth: food is mashed so that it is easy to swallow, carbohydrates are digested so that it can be absorbed by the intestine
Esophagus: a channel between the mouth and stomach and a valve to protect food from entering the airway / throat
Stomach: there are enzymes and acids to process food further, the food is stirred and ground to make it like a paste / concentrated liquid / chemical, the process of digestion of proteins begins, and acidic substances as the body's defense to attack germs that may enter with food
Small intestine: the breakdown of food is continued assisted by enzymes, fat breakdown occurs, then nutrients are absorbed by the body through blood vessels
Large intestine: absorption of water and some minerals into the blood so that the rest of the food is more dense and becomes feces then will be passed on to the rectum and discarded during bowel movements

As much as possible we consume foods that are healthy and nutritious and make sure the food you eat is clean and not stale. No stale here means that when eaten food is still in good and decent condition. When eating stale food, the risk that can occur is food poisoning.


Stale food may be contaminated by various germs that can cause poisoning. Symptoms of food poisoning include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, weakness, and fever. If these symptoms appear you should consult a doctor so that further treatment can be given.


Hope it helps you,


Thank you
