Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out to study the bacteriological quality of locally manufactured ice cream in Navsari city of Gujarat. A total of 150 samples were collected aseptically from local vendors situated in different locations of the city. The attempts were made to detect three species of bacteria namely Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli and Salmonella spp. The organisms were isolated using standard laboratory methods and confirmation was done by Gram’s staining and various biochemical tests. Salmonella spp. was not detected in any of the samples, however 17 samples contained E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus was present in 69 samples.


Keywords: Ice cream, Staphylococcus aureus, E. coli
