Moth Bean Sprouts are well known for their high nutritive value and digestibility. They are rich in enzymes, bioavailable vitamins, minerals, amino acids and fibers. Survey of sprouted seeds available at retail venders has shown the presence of various pathogenic bacteria like Escherichia coli O157:H7, Salmonella and Klebsiella, which is of concern for health conscious public. In the present study antimicrobial susceptibility testing of bacterial isolates from moth bean sprouts is done in order to determine which antimicrobial agent is to use against specific strains of bacteria. Antibiotic susceptibility of bacterial isolates from moth bean sprouts was examined against 10 antibiotics viz. Ampicillin, Amoxycillin, Ciprofloxacin, Chloramphenicol, Oxacillin, Gentamicin, Voriconazole, Rifampicin, Methicillin, Norfloxacin.
