Explain the digestion in stomach.

Asked by Topperlearning User 10th November 2013, 4:26 AM
Answered by Expert

The gastric glands in the stomach secrete:

(i) HCl - It kills the bacteria ingested with food and makes the medium of food acidic so as to facilitate the action of the enzyme pepsin.

(ii) Pepsin - It helps to digest proteins.

(iii) Mucus - It protects the inner lining of the stomach from the action of HCl.
