Abstract:

The milk samples (Raw and Boiled) were collected from various vendors of Hoshiarpur and Ludhiana district. Three different samples of Pasteurized milk samples were taken from the market. These samples were evaluated for their quality by determining Standard Plate Count (SPC) and Coliform count. The bacterial colonies ranged from 0.7×104cfu/ml to 6×106cfu/ml in boiled milk. Methylene Blue reduction test (MBRT) had also been performed to check microbial quality of the samples and Sample 1 (both raw and boiled) was reported to be poor. All the three samples (Pasteurized) were reported to be found adulterated with borates and carbonates while no samples were found to contain detergent.


Keywords: Standard plate count, MacConkey agar, Methylene blue reduction test
