Abstract

Fifty Six market Khoa samples collected from the retail sweet shops in a randomized manner dividing the city in to seven zones were analysed. Most of the market Khoa samples reflected relatively lower chemical attributes except moisture and ash which were comparatively higher in market samples than control. Though majority of market Khoa samples were of acceptable physico-chemical quality and were well within the legal standards, However, the microbiological quality of market Khoa samples was posing a grim picture when expressed in terms of TVC, coliform and yeast and mould counts with a respective average figure of 50.4, 3.20 and 3.87x103/g.
