Abstract

EVALUATION OF ANTIBACTERIAL ACTIVITY OF CARDAMOM SEED POWDER EXTRACT

*T. Pandu Raju, B. Raja Narender and Ram Mohan M.

ABSTRACT

The aim of this research work is to evaluate the antibacterial activity of cardamom seed powder extract on Streptococcus Mutants. An in-vitro study was conducted to assess effectiveness of 15%, 20%, and 50% cardamom seed powder extract on Streptococcus mutants. The cup plate method was used to test the antibacterial activity. Cavities were prepared on Nutrient agar plates with the help of borer having 6-mm diameter. The plates were left for 1 hr at room temperature and then incubated at 37°C for 48 hours and examined for zone of inhibition. There was significant difference in mean diameter of zone of inhibition of 15% and 20% cardamom seed extract. Results showed that cardamom seed powder extracts had antibacterial activity against streptococcus mutants, while antibacterial activity was significantly higher in 50% cardamom seed powder extract.

Keywords: Streptococcus mutants, Cardamom seed extract zone of inhibition, antibacterial activity.
