A limitdextrinase, free from contaminating carbohydrases, has been purified frommaltedsorghum flour. The enzyme readily hydrolysed α-limit dextrins having maltosyl or maltotriosyl side-chains, pullulan, and amylopectin β-limit dextrin. Glycogen β-limit dextrin and amylopectin were more slowly hydrolysed, the detection of the hydrolysis of amylopectin being dependent on enzyme concentration. No significant debranching of glycogen could be detected
