IN VIEW of the shortage of food-grains in the country, maize or other cereal starches are not available for the production of Glucose. Results of certain preliminary experiments carried out in this laboratory on the standardization of conditions for the acid hydrolysis of tapioca starch are reported in this note. Tapioca has been used as a raw material for the manufacture of dextrose in the United States (Williams 1, 2). Since tapioca is a heavy yielding crop, which can be grown on comparatively poor soils with low rainfall, the use of tapioca for the manufacture of glucose has economic and commercial possibilities.
