Abstract Share this page

Probiotics from milk products were isolated and tested for their antimicrobial activity for Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella typhi, Serratia marcescens and Candida albicans using the agar overlay method. Results showed the presence of antimicrobial activity among the probiotics from Yakult Drink, Ski D ’ Lite Yogurt, Nestle Yogurt, Gain Powdered Milk and Neslac Powdered Milk. The spectrum of their antimicrobial activity varied. Yakult and Ski D ’ Lite probiotics inhibited the growth of all the isolates tested against them. Nestle yogurt probiotics were bactericidal for S. aureus and P. aeruginosa, but were inhibitory for S. typhi. Neslac probiotics killed the test organisms E. coli and S. typhi. They were only inhibitory for S. aureus and C. albicans. Gain probiotics inhibited the growth of C. albicans.
