Amino Acid Composition of Grain Dusts.

The amino acid compositions of wheat, corn, grain sorghum, soybeans, a wheat-corn mixture, and rice and of dusts from those grains were determined by automated ion-exchange chromatography. Protein content was 2-3% (dry basis) less in dust than in the corresponding grains, except for soybeans, in which the protein content of dust was about 13% compared to about 41% in whole seeds. However, the concentration of lysine, the most limiting amino acid in most grains, was higher in each type of dust than in the parent grains, except soybean dust.
