  From  Webster's  Revised  Unabridged  Dictionary  (1913)  [web1913]: 
 
  Hemipeptone  \Hem`i*pep"tone\,  n.  [Hemi-  +  peptone.]  (Physiol. 
  Chem.) 
  A  product  of  the  gastric  and  pancreatic  digestion  of 
  albuminous  matter. 
 
  Note:  Unlike  antipeptone  it  is  convertible  into  leucin  and 
  tyrosin,  by  the  continued  action  of  pancreatic  juice. 
  See  {Peptone}.  It  is  also  formed  from  hemialbumose  and 
  albumin  by  the  action  of  boiling  dilute  sulphuric  acid.
