Does drinking, not chewing, your food affect in any way the creation of stomach acid and digestion?

I have read that chewing stimulates the creation of acid and that drinking your nutrients may not result in their full value being absorbed into your system. If this is true, can it be countered with the addition of HCL with Pepsin to your meal/drink?

Chewing does stimulate the digestive process including digestive enzymes, starting with amylase in the mouth. It also prompts signaling for other digestive processes in the stomach. With this in mind, I'd suggest "chewing your smoothie"! This helps secrete those natural digestive enzymes and prevents the need for any additional supplements.
