Abstract:

The objective of the current study was to identify the effect of reusing the alkali solution on thermoduric count in pasteurized milk. The study was carried out in a commercial Dairy Plant, where reusing of alkali solution is not practiced. In the present study, 28 samples each were collected from raw milk, pasteurized milk, and alkali solution before and after its use. Equivalent numbers of samples from surface swab of storage tank were also collected after cleaning procedure. Immediately after collection samples were plated for evaluating Total Viable Count (TVC) and thermoduric count on plate count agar. The genera which comes under the thermoduric bacteria are characterized based on colony morphology, Gram staining, biochemical reactions and 16s rDNA PCR. The result indicated that the isolated organism was B. megaterium. The isolated organisms were subjected to acid, alkali and heat adaptation studies.
