Let’s go back a bit. You swallowed this Swedish meatball and now it’s been pulverized and the stomach secretes acid. Now, believe it or not, the strength that the potency of the acid is secreted by the stomach is actually probably more potent than the acid you’d find in a battery, and so it’ll help break down this food. The meatball obviously contains different substances, fat and protein in particular. There’s a certain enzyme called Pepsin, which will be released into the stomach and will help break down this meatball further.
