Abstract
Food garnishes are often used in an uncooked form. Hence, the chance of contamination is high. The present research work was carried out to isolate potentially pathogenic and food spoilage causing bacteria from commonly used food garnishes. Six such bacteria were isolated and characterized and antibiotic sensitivity tests were conducted. It was found that it is concluded that the most dominant bacteria on food garnishes was Pseudomonas aeruginosa followed by Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella sp., Klebsiella sp., and Citrobacter sp.. The combination of vinegar and salt was found to be more effective against contaminant bacteria isolated from food garnishes.
