GIT Gastric Chief and Parietal cells Mnemonic!

I don't know about you
but I often forget what is secreted from these
So here's how I remember it

The chef brings you meat with a side serve of vinegar

Which means that Chief cells produce pepsinogen to digest proteins while parietal (side) produce the acid

Chef cuts the meat= Chief secretes pepsinogen to cut protein
Pariet Pours In Acid Factor= Parietal secretes acid and Intrinsic Factor.

a logical way to remember is that:

the CHIEF function of the stomach is to digest protein,so the CHIEF cells will secrete the CHIEF(read most important) factor that digests..i.e---pepsin

the other one is the other on!
