ETHANOLIC EXTRACT OF ALLIUM SATIVUM CLOVES AND ITS ANTIBACTERIAL ACTIVITY AGAINST FOOD BORNE PATHOGEN STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS
Ethanolic extract of (Garlic)Allium sativum cloves were carried out for their antimicrobial properties against Staphylococcus aureus, E.coli,Salmonella sp. and Shigella sp.with well diffusion and MIC methods.The present study showed that the ethanolic extract of Allium sativum was effective against Staphylococcus aureus, E.coli,Salmonella sp. and Shigella sp. Some countries used Allium sativum as food preservative.The results were studied with the results acquired by using standard antibiotic disc (Chloramphenicol and Penicilin). The outcome of these results showed that the clinical isolates of Staphylococcus aureus showed highest Zone of inhibition when compared to other isolates.
