Abstract

This research was conducted to study the effect of aqueous & ethanolic extracts of turmeric spice against five bacterial isolates which isolated randomly from 50 fifty different food samples from restaurants. Isolated bacteria were ( S. aureus, B. subtilis, E. coli, S. typhi and Shigella sp..) The results showed that the ethanolic turmeric extracts can effect on growth of S. aureus & B. subtilis more than on growth of E. coli & Shigella sp., while
the equeous turmeric extract can effect on growth of E. coli & Shigella sp. more than on growth of salmonella typhi.
Key words: antibacterial activity, turmeric aqueous and alcoholic extracts, pathogenic bacteria, local food.
