Amoeba pushes out pseudopodia around the food and traps it in a food vacuole.
Amoeba does not have any specialized organ for nutrition. Its entire process is carried through the body surface with the help of pseudopodia.Ingestion is the process of taking in the food into the body either by swallowing or absorbing it. Amoeba pushes out the pseudopodia to encircle the food and engulfs it forming a food vacuole. This process is known as phagocytosis.
