nhemialbumoseAn intermediate product of the digestion of an albuminoid by gastric juice or trypsin. It is also formed by heating albumin with a mineral acid, and occurs in small quantity in the vegetable kingdom. Further action of trypsin converts it into hemipeptone, and finally into certain amido-compounds. It is distinguished from allied proteids by its behavior on heating and with acids.
