Food and its transformation

The food that is consumed is converted in to two – the essence that is absorbed and the waste that is eliminated.The absorbed essence is known as rasa, which is the first dhatu (or the structural principle). The other dhatus are the blood, muscle, fat, bone, marrow and reproductive principle.The transformation at the dhatu level takes place uninterruptedly in a healthy person and ultimate energy (known as ojas) is generated as an end product.

The waste for elimination are – feces, urine and sweat – these are called malas
