STUDY ON ANTIBACTERIAL ACTIVITY OF HONEY SAMPLES COLLECTED FROM MEDICINAL PLANT SOURCESKARUNA PAWAR, KEDAR ROKADE AND GAJANAN MALI
The present investigation describes about the antibacterial activity of three different natural honey samples obtained from different locations of Sangli district. The pH values of these collected honey samples ranges from 4.0 to 4.5. Antibacterial activity of honey at its natural acidic pH as well as by maintaining neutral pH was studied on seven pathogenic bacteria. Marked variations were observed in the antibacterial activity of these honey samples. All the honey samples at natural acidic pH as well as at neutral pH showed a spectrum of antibacterial activity on five different bacterial species such as Salmonella typhi, Shigella dysentriae, Bacillus megaterium, Staphylococcus aureus, andProteus vulgaris
