In a preliminary communication from this Laboratory, Srinivasan, Bhalerao & Subramanian (1952) reported the presence of polyfructosans in the stem of Agave vera cruz (hereinafter referred to as the agave; for description of this species, see Firminger, 1905; Duthie, 1915; Bailey, 1919). This material has since been shown by chromatographic methods to contain a number of other water-soluble carbohydrates (Bhatia, Satyanarayana & Srinivasan, 1953). The carbohydrate make-up in the stem of the agave appears, in general, to be similar to that reported by Dedonder (1950) and by Bacon & Edelman (1951) in Jerusalem artichoke. However, neither of the two polyfructosans isolated from the agave seems to be identical with inulin.
