ABSTRACT





. Microbial quality of
commercially prepared yoghurt sold in umuahia was evaluated. Ten(10) different
brands of Yoghurt was purchased randomly from hawkers and beverage stores in
Umuahia urban and analyzed in the laboratory. Six (6) of the samples where
registered by NAFDAC [ Sample A, B, C, D, E and F,] while four(4) others were
not registered [ Sample G, H, I, J.]. total viable count (TVC) of the samples
ranged from 3.25x102 (sample B) to 5.0x104 (sample F) for
registered samples (A to F) and 8.2x104 cfu/ml (sample A) to 2.12x105
cfu/ml (sample J). staphylococcal count ranged  from 2.0x102 cfu/ml (sample B and F)
to 9.6x104 cfu/ml (sample J). which is within the acceptable limit
for microbiological quality for readily to eat food samples. Sample B  was negative for taphylococcus aureus. TCC ranges from 1.0x102 cfu/ml
(sample B) to 5.0x104 cfu/ml (sample E) for registered and non-registered
samples, sample C showed no growth of coliform. Total Fungal count ranged from
1.0x102 cfu/ml (sample A and D) to 4.0x104 cfu/ml (sample
G). sample B,  and D showed  no growth of fungi. Organism isolated include

Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella spp,  Citrobacter

spp  and Lactobacillus

spp . Aspergillous spp and candida
albicans
was also isolated from the samples. Results shows that yoghurt sold
in Umuahia showed  presence of coliforms,
bacteria and fungi which poses great health risk to consumers.
