FOR MI­CRO­BI­O­LOG­I­CAL AC­TIV­ITY

Consumer Voice - - Comparative Test -

Mi­cro­bi­o­log­i­cal con­tam­i­na­tion is a crit­i­cal fac­tor in de­ter­min­ing the qual­ity of food prod­ucts. Micro­organ­isms are re­spon­si­ble for many food­borne dis­eases. Due to im­proper or poor man­u­fac­tur­ing prac­tices, micro­organ­isms oc­cur in the fin­ished prod­uct.

Tests were con­ducted for to­tal plate count (TPC) and E. coli. The lat­ter has to be ab­sent in the food prod­uct. The TPC val­ues were not sig­nif­i­cant, which meant

that all the brands were safe for con­sump­tion. All the brands were found free from E. coli and hence

con­sid­ered to be safe for con­sump­tion.
