feces

fe·ces

/ˈfēsēz/

Noun

After food is digested, the nutrients are slowly absorbed by the small intestine into the bloodstream. Leftover products such as cellulose are left behind, eventually coalescing into feces. Water is reabsorbed in the large intestines, leaving behind solid fecal matter that is excreted out of the rectum through the anus.
