We perform post-Newtonian analysis of double field theory as a test of string theory in gravitational sector against observations. We identify the Eddington-Robertson-Schiff parameters βPPN, γPPN with the charges of electric H flux and dilaton respectively, and further relate them to stress-energy tensor. We show βPPN=1 from weak energy condition and argue that the observation of γPPN≃1 signifies the ultrarelativistic equation of state in baryons, or the suppression of gluon condensate.
