Abstract:

A study was carried out to determine the antimicrobial effect of aqueous extract of ginger, garlic and ginger-garlic in combination (1:2) on Listeria monocytogenes inoculated in chicken breast muscle. Inoculated breast muscles were subjected to dipping treatments and samples dipped in water were used as control. Results revealed that the mean L. monocytogenes count of water (control), ginger, ginger-garlic dipped samples were 4.35±0.06, 3.54±0.03, 3.58±0.03 and 3.45±0.03, respectively. The mean log values of all the treated samples were significantly lower (p≤0.05) than that of the control. Among the treatment groups, ginger-garlic treated samples had significantly lower (p≤0.05) L. monocytogenes count than that of garlic treated samples whereas the count did not differ significantly between the former and ginger treated samples.
