Comments "The more intense peristaltic waves promote antral emptying, which allows gastric contents, mainly fluid mixed with small particles, to pass through the pylorus and enter the duodenum. The particle size of the food emptied through the pylorus is less than 1 to 2mm during the fed state (primary source)."
