Author(s): Dr. Meera Gupta
Abstract: The present study reveals the antibacterial nature of garlic paste to be maximum as compared to ginger and onion paste. This is attributed to the presence of maximum sulphur compounds in it. However all these 3 medicinal extracts prove to be significant antimicrobials.
The paste of onion, garlic and ginger were mixed in nutrient agar medium separately and air borne bacteria were observed. The colony count showed that minimum bacterial colonies existed in NA with garlic paste.
