One hundred and ten rice pudding samples were collected from different shops and supermarkets in Cairo and Giza Governorate, Egypt. Collected samples were subjected to microbiological examination. The obtained results were in mean values of 5.6x106 cfu/gm, 7.1x105 cfu/gm, 9.3x104 cfu/gm, and 3.1x 104 cfu/gm for Mesophilic bacteria, Coagulase Positive Staphylococci (CPS), Total Yeasts & Molds and Aerobic Spore Former respectively. Eighty percent and 6.36% of the examined samples were positive for CPS and E. coli respectively. The survival of probiotic bacteria was studied in rice pudding for 14 days. The product was monitored for sensory, physicochemical and S.aureus count during its storage. It was found a significant difference between control and probiotic rice pudding samples at day 14 due to occurrence of heterogeneous texture and syneresis. The count of S.aureus decreased significantly (p< 0.05) at 3rd and 7th day of storage in samples with added Bifidobacterium lactis.

Keywords: Bifidobacterium lactis,Coagulase Positive Staphylococci, Rice pudding.
