Stomach acid is essential to break down fats and protein. Does anybody know if fruits and vegetables require stomach acid, even if to a lesser extent e.g. small amounts, in order to be broken down?
Even 100g of kale contains 4g protein so I suppose it does ? Fruits and vegetables are solid foods and when eating things like kale after chewing they are not yet liquid. So how do these proteins and solids get broken down in the stomach, does stomach acid play a role.
What about avocado, it contains protein and significant fat, does it require stomach acid to be digested like normal protein?
