ABSTRACT:
Honey is a natural sweet substance produced by honeybees from nectar of flowers. It consists of major sugars, acids, vitamins, proteins, enzymes and volatile substances. It is a chief source of glucose and fructose. Henceforth, it plays an important role in food industries. Besides, honey is widely used in medicine as antibacterial agent. The selected strains of bacteria namely – Pseudomonas aeruginosa, staphylococcus species, Bacillus species and Escherichia coli were studied against the dilutions of honey by Agar-well diffusion technique. The honey sample from Coorg district, exhibited relatively high antibacterial activity.
