The products of exhaustive salivary alpha-amylolysis of defatted waxy corn starch have been examined for anomalous sugars. Maltulose (4-O-alpha-D-glucopyranosyl-D-fructose) was isolated in low yield, indicating the occurrence of D-fructose in waxy corn starch. No free nigerose was liberated by the enzyme.
