Abstract:

The present study undertaken to assess the bacterial analysis of masala ware and potato masala sold with panipuri in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India. Total ten samples from different zones of Coloba area of Mumbai were aseptically collected and analysed within one hour of procurement. Isolation, enumeration and identification of the bacteria were carried out following the standard procedure. The CFU counts of the panipuri water samples ranged from4 × 105 to 6 ×106 cfu/ml. The viable aerobic bacterial load of samples of potato masala on NA ranged from 2×107 to 3×109 cfu/g, thus indicating a high rate of contamination. All samples of have high bacterial load of pathogenic bacteria such as Escherichia coli (50%), Salmonella typhi (30%), Salmonella paratyphi A (20%). The isolates in potato masala were identified as Escherichia coli (50%), Salmonella typhi (20%). The bacteriological analysis of the panipuri sold in Mumbai city constitutes an important potential hazard to human health and provision of health education to the vendors improves quality of panipuri.
