Galen first used it in its present sense ;-i. e. for a nutritive fluid, extracted by intestinal absorption, from food which has been subjected to the action of the digestive organs. It is of a whitish appearance; and is formed from the chime in the duodenum, and the rest of the small intestines, by the chyliferous vessels, which arise at the mucous surface of the intestine. Along these it passes through the mesenteric glands to the thoracic duct, and is finally poured into the left subclavian. It is composed, like the blood, of a fluid -liquor chyli-and of Chyle corpuscles or globules, the average size of which is about 1-4600th of an inch. See Chyme.
