From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

An accessory digestive gland is a gland of the digestive system that is not a part of the digestive tract.

An example of an accessory digestive gland is the exocrine pancreas.[1]

A closely related term is "accessory digestive organ". This can include structures that play a direct role in digestion, but are not glands, such as teeth. [2]
