The triglycerides of wheat, the fatty acids obtained from them, and the total fatty acids of wheat, bran, germ, and endosperm were analyzed by countercurrent distribution and gas-liquid chromatography. A relatively few types of triglycerides were found to be present. The total as well as triglyceride fatty acids present in bran, germ, and endosperm are quite similar although differences do exist.
