The microbial quality of Khoa was satisfactory at the time of production but deteriorated during storage, handling and marketing. The present study was undertaken to evaluate bacteriological quality of khoa and to develop awareness of health hazard due to its consumption to the consumers. Total 50 khoa samples were collected from various shops in Amravati city and analysed for bacteriological quality.
