The stomach produces hydrochloric acid that significantly lowers the pH of the stomach juice. High acidity denatures proteins and inactivates enzymes. As a result, most of digestive enzymes would be inactivated in the stomach.

Digestion of carbohydrates occurs in the small intestine, i.e., duodenum, where carbohydrates digesting enzymes are produced.
