The normal volume of the stomach fluid is 20 to 100 mL and the pH is acidic (1.5 to 3.5). These numbers are converted to actual acid production in units of milliequivalents per hour (mEq/hr) in some cases. Note: Normal value ranges may vary slightly depending on the lab doing the test.

What is hydrochloric acid in the stomach?

HCL breaks down proteins in your stomach to prepare them for digestion and kills bacteria that enter your stomach. It converts the inactive enzyme pepsinogen into the active enzyme pepsin, which is responsible for digesting proteins in your stomach. HCL also helps digest other foods in your stomach.
