Abstract

The present study was carried out to determine the antimicrobial effect of three different fruit juices against six enteric pathogens named Vibrio cholera, Salmonella Typhi, Salmonella Paratyphi A, Shigella flexneri, Shigella sonnei,Escherichia coli. The study was done by time kill assay method where the antimicrobial activity of the fruit juices was checked in different time intervals. The use of different concentrations (100%, 75%, 50%, 25%) of citrus juice extracts had an effective antibacterial activity against. Lemon juice was the most effective against the test organisms in both undiluted and diluted concentration. Orange juice and sweet lemon juice showed antimicrobial activity only against Vibrio cholera.
