    The surfaces of starch granules were examined, using enzymic methods. Undamaged starch granules were washed free of any cold-water soluble materials and then incubated with bacterial isomylase. The solubilized material was assayed for total carbohydrate and for interaction with iodine. The unit chains released by the action of isoamylase on wheat-starch granules were subjected to gel permeation chromatography.
