It takes several steps for your body to digest a cheese sandwich. First, the cheese must be broken down in your mouth into sugar by the enzyme amylase. Second, the enzyme pepsin digests the protein in your stomach producing chyme. The chyme then enters the rectum to be expelled as feces from your anus. in the meantime, the bread is turned into sugar and used for energy.
