Gastric juice of infants contains

Correct! Wrong!

The gastric juice of the infant contains Pepsinogen, rennin (as prorennin), and gastric lipase along with mucus and HCl. The pH of the gastric juice is ranged from 7.5 and 8.5 in meconium-containing specimens and ranged from 1.4 to 7.8 in meconium-free samples in infants obtained 3 to 4 minutes after birth. Meconium is the earliest stool of a mammalian infant and mainly composed of materials ingested during the time the infant spends in the uterus: intestinal epithelial cells, mucus, amniotic fluid, bile, and water.
