Red gram (Cu@zus ca@n) is a legume commonly consumed in tropical countries, usually after dehusking as &al. Industries have developed in these countries for dehusking red gram seeds and other legumes. Different varieties of red gram that are grown, have differences in dehusking quality that cause problems for these industries’. It is well established that such differences in milling characteristics are due to differences in adherence of husk to cotyledon, and non-starchy polysaccharides are implicated in this process l - 3. This prompted a systematic study of the chemical nature and physical properties of non-starchy polysaccharides of red gram isolated from different parts of the seeds, in varieties that have differences in dehusking characteristics. The present paper deals with structures of glucuronoxylans isolated from a difficult-milling variety of red gram.
