The nutritive values of raw and autoclaved wheat germ were compared using the chick as an experimental animal. Raw wheat germ was found to depress growth and fat utilization, and also to induce pancreatic hypertrophy. A hemagglutinin factor was detected in raw wheat germ. All detrimental properties noted could be destroyed by autoclaving.
