Because the needs to processed and broken down into simple particles which are then absorbable by the intestines. It takes time to break down food into simpler compounds which body can process. So thats why nutrionist say this

Actually stomach is  just the second organ in the process of digestion {as the first organ is mouth ,woth salivary amylase} so the food is yet to be digested to its simplest form {ie.into monomer from polymers like carbohydrates,fats,proteins into monosaccharides,fatty acids and monopeptide} and the absorption of water and other basoc liquid starts in stmoch but tge actual absorption of food starts in SMALL INTESTINE.
