A Note on Scanning Electron Microscopy of Low- and High-Protein Barley Malts.

Y. Pomeranz. Copyright 1974 by the American Association of Cereal Chemists, Inc. 

Scanning electron microscopy was used to follow modification in malting of a low- and a high-protein barley cultivar. In the low-protein cultivar, degradation of the protein matrix was extensive and some of the degraded protein was deposited in kilned malt on the starch granules. In the high-protein cultivar, much of the protein matrix was largely intact and some protein was retained in the form of a continuous thick film covering the starch granules.
