Hey team, got a question on digestion times for chicken and rice. Always thought proteins and grains had different rates, but when eaten together, how does that work? Curious about the body's process for this common meal. Is it longer because of the protein, or does rice speed things up? Would love to hear experiences or facts on this. 🤤🍚🍗

Different factors, such as an individual's metabolism and the meal's unique composition, might affect how long a meal takes to digest. Rice and chicken are generally easy to digest; they usually pass through the stomach and into the small intestine for further processing and absorption in 1.5 to 2 hours. This can, however, differ from person to person.
 
I've heard that chicken and rice digest at different rates. Chicken might take about 2-3 hours, while rice might take around 1-2 hours. Though, everyone's digestion is different. 🕒
