Digestion requires enzymes and mucin for hydrolysis of ingested foods into smaller components, e.g. amino acids, glucose, etc. before it can be absorbed and utilized. There are no intestinal tract enzymes to hydrolyze or break down plastic, therefore no digestion of this material can occur. Plastic will be excreted, in the feces, without any change.
