Nope! Not possible as no digestive enzymes are produced in the colon. However, there is bacteria that breaks food down (colonic bacteria), but this isn't considered chemical digestion

Also quick question: I don't get the different between chemical digestion and enzymatic hydrolosis!.

I think chemical digestion involves enzymes and digestive juices, whereas enzymatic hydrolysis, is the breaking down of protein into amino acids.

Found a link about doing Food Studies by distance, and a lot of the things mentioned would still be relevant to you. You do pracs, and it certainly looks like lots of fun! However, there would still be plenty of theory.
