Abstract: The nutritive value of cereal grains for poultry generally changes during storage. It is believed that this change is due to the activity of endogenous glycanases which degrade the viscous non-starch polysaccharides. However, these enzymes are present at such low levels in ungerminated wheat that measurement of their activity is difficult (Lee and Ronalds, 1972). We report here a simple procedure for the measurement of endogenous β-glucanase activity.
