Quick question about blending certain foods

Hi, I'm just wondering, for my own personal reasons I do this, I want to know does the body absorb food the same way?

So in my case, if i throw some veggies like broccoli and carrots in the blender, does the puree absorb the same way as if I ate the broccoli and carrots whole?

When I eat pasta for instance, if i was to add a whole bunch of veggies, some whole grains, and something would take me forever to eat the dish. But if i made a puree of it all, the more I add the more variety and the more nutriition. I know it sounds odd and gross but with my conditions I have to make the adjustments and the taste/texture doesn't bother me at all.

I have certain disorders and I eat extremely slow sometimes i like to puree my food so eat it quicker.

Thank you

Yes, the food would still be absorbed the same way. You might loose some fiber by pureeing and therefore digest the puree a little faster than solid food, but otherwise, to my knowledge, absorption wouldn't change.
