The protein digestion in stomach and ends up in the small intestine.Protein digestion in the stomach occurs mainly by the action of hydrochloric acid (HCl) and enzyme called pepsin.he chyme first enters duodenum, which is a part of small intestine.The chyme is very acidic but here it mixes with an alkaline secretion and becomes neutral. Pancreas secrete digestive enzyme, trypsin and chymotrypsin, which reach the duodenum through bloodstream and aid in the breakdown of proteins.
