Before we understand what intestinal cells produce, let us know what an intestine is. It is the part of the alimentary canal, which enlarges from the stomach to the anus. The intestines (used in plural form in general) are associated mainly with the digestion and absorption of food. In human beings, intestines comprises of the small intestine and the large intestine.

The main function of intestinal cells is associated with secreting digestive juices into the lumen (the inner cavity of an intestine or blood vessel). The cells in the small intestine help in a major part of digestion. This is the place where food products are absorbed. The large intestine is associated with water absorption and excretion of solid waste substance.
