A Polarimetric Study of Flour Diastatic Value.

A. H. Woodhead and C. A. Wyatt. Copyright 1960 by the American Association of Cereal Chemists, Inc. 

The diastatic values of flour samples measured polarimetrically differ in a regular and notably simple manner from results obtained by chemical reduction methods of analysis. The reducing substances present in bran and germ were not recorded by the polarimeter, and the results by the latter method are therefore suggested as affording a more convenient measure of the main products of flour autolysis.
