What is a food vacuole?


Food vacuole is a membrane-enclosed sac, which has a digestive function. It is present in unicellular protozoans such as amoeba, plasmodium, etc.

They work as an intracellular stomach, digesting the ingested food. It contains digestive enzymes, which break down the food and then it is released into the cytoplasm for utilization.
