Corn gluten, as the term is here used, is a icyproduct of the manufacture of starch irom com. It consists of the insoluble protein of the corn with a very considerable admixture, ordinarily, The ingredients used may he mixed by any known method which will give an intimate and uniform mixture. in some cases ordihury stir“ 5 ring will he sumcient, end in other cases, partim ularly if any of the solid ingredients are not in e'?nely eouted stute, it will be found ad vantegeous to bring about intiinete mining es m of starch. In fact, the ordinary corn gluten which tails off from the starch rubles, it 1. ,only by use of di?erential rolls. , to rlf’he formaldehyde should be used in a form used for separating gluten from starch, may ccntain about 50% protein, 35% sterch and 15% other com constituents such as ?bre, pentosons, it; oil and ash. Gluten is used to refer speci?cally to the protein fraction or corn, hut in common parlance in this industry the term “corn gluten” is used to designate the protein-starch mixture above referred to and the term is so used herein. dd That is, all corn gluten contains in addition to suitable for thorough mixing with the other in eredients, for example. either the humid prone ration lmown as formalin. 01‘ the Solid- prel?dme tion known us peralormaldehyde, may he used. it To obtain the host results the acid used should be e Strong om ucid, thetis on acid having e strength oi‘ the order oi‘ magnitude 01?
