'Amla' (Phyllanthus emblica L.) preserve holds a commendable place as a general tonic in the Dnani and Ayurvedic system of medicine. Large quantities of the preserve are consumed. During storage, the preserve usually undergoes gaseous fermentation causing spoilage and emitting undesirable odours. The taste of the fruit alters and the fruit starts disintegrating. The present study reveals that the initial bacterial contamination of the fruit is eventually superseded by yeast and mould in the final product. Addition of mild doses of sulphur dioxide and sodium benzoate at 0.01% level help to check the spoilage.
