The glutathione reductase method was used for determining glutathione in wheat flour. The content of glutathione was 2.4 and 1.4 microneq./100 g. flour from hard red winter and hard red spring wheat respectively. An acidic fraction of the dialysate separated by gel filtration on DEAE-Sephadex with 1M acetic acid was found to contain glutathione and some other peptides. Half of the glutathione in the original dialysate was detected in the acidic fraction of DEAE-Sephadex by the enzymatic method.
