Abstract
Market samples of Shrikhand were collected from twenty popular manufacturers, five from each of the four cities of Maharashtra and analysed for microbiological quality. The standard plate count (SPC) and yeast and mold counts (YMC) of the product ranged from 5.59 to 8.36 and 3.52 to 5.24 log cfu/g and square root transfonned values of coliforms ranged from 1.00 to 5.67 cfu/g. Microbiological differences among manufacturers of different cities were too low to be significant. Almost all the samples did not meet the requirements for YMC as laid down under BIS standards.
