cornstarch and water, non-newtonian fluid, also with some sgar and egg yolk and flavour is custard which is also the base for ice-cream. so eat ice-cream and call it science.

Just for other people who MIGHT "eat Non-Newtonian" material , not all of them are as benign and non-toxic as cornstarch. YMMV. Cornstarch will do you no harm - but don't let it go mouldy !

If you digest it too fast it will solidify and become unpassable, better digest good and slow to ensure it has a low viscosity.

Oh, my god! Your stress-strain relation is going to be non-linear! Who know what bizarre behaviour you might present as a result of that....

If it's just water and cornstarch then you're fine, that kind is non-toxic... but I would advise against eating it in the future :).
