The milk products and by products may be contaminated intentionally/unintentionally at different level at the time of production, processing, and storage. Therefore, the present study was conducted with an objective to assess Microbial Quality Evaluation of Flaxseed incorporated Camel and Buffalo Milk Nuggets. The samples were collected hygienically and subjected to microbiological analysis. The control and treatment milk nuggets were examined for the standard plate count (SPC), coliform count, yeast, and mould count during storage for 12 days at refrigeration temperature for interval of 0, 3, 6, 9 and 12 days. The initial microbial load was nil up to 3rd day of storage then standard plate count value, coli form count and yeast and mould count of milk nuggets were increased significantly (P<0.05) in both control and treatment milk nuggets during the refrigerated (4±1°C) storage period. Therefore, it is concluded that the milk nuggets based on Flaxseed Incorporation prepared from Camel and Buffalo Milk were highly safe to consume from fresh condition till three days of storage period. The microbiological quality of these nuggets was showing a declining pattern after three days of storage period. After nine days of storage, it should not be recommended for consumption as it is almost deteriorated by yeast and mould.
