A strong correlation between baking quality and size distribution of wheat glutenin polymers exists, so we have utilized Circular Dichroism Spectroscopy in presence of some denaturant agents to study glutenin polymers. Spectra indicated that all the changes induced by urea and by sodium dodecyl sulphate followed a multi-step transition process.
