D-galactose, myo-inositol, and glycerol were isolated and characterized from the monosaccharide fraction obtained from a sample of wheat which had deteriorated under an atmosphere of nitrogen for 24 weeks at 18% moisture and 30 C. In addition, D-glucose and D-fructose were obtained in chromatographically pure form. The control wheat sample yielded D-glucose and D-fructose together with trace amounts of what appeared to be D-galactose and myo-inositol.
