Carbohydrates and proteins are digested in the stomach. Carbs require several enzymes to be digested, such as the enzyme salivary amylase (secreted in the mouth); digestion ultimately occurs at the level of the stomach. Proteins are also digested in the stomach, but require a general class of enzymes called proteases in order to be digested.
