Abstract

Activity of different fractions of turmeric on the growth rate of some intestinaJ, pathogenic and toxigenic bacteria was tested. The oil fraction of the turmeric considerably suppressed the growth of the above bacteria. Curcumin, the pigment fraction of turmeric, did not show any growth suppressing ability except against Staphylococcus aureus and Bacillus cereus. Alcoholic e:r.:tract of turmeric and turmeric oil induced morphological changes in Streptococci, lActobacilli and Staphylococci.
