What is a normal digestion time?

Asked by tan235 (877points) November 29th, 2010

Does anyone here know what a normal digestion time is?
I ate some oats today with flaxseed and 9 hours later… whadya know, there they are in the toilet.
That seems awfully fast.

Does anyone know why this might happen, or can this be normal?
I’m skinny, so i have a fast metabolism but this seems way fast.
any ideas?

How did you accurately identify the contents of your feces?

i just looked in the bowl and it was there….. i’ve been noticing them a lot lately as i have been having weird stomach issues – re : heart burn, acid reflux blah blah

Depends on what you eat. Less than 2 minutes if you swallow glucose, a bit more when you swallow sucrose, and even more when you swallow fructose.
