Abstract: Mung Bean Sprouts are well known for their high nutritive value and digestibility. They are rich in enzymes, bioavailable vitamins, minerals, amino acids and fibers. Survey of sprouted seeds available at retail venders has shown the presence of pathogenic bacteria like E. coli  0157, Salmonella and Listeria monocytogens, which is of concern for health conscious public. In the present study antimicrobial susceptibility testing of bacterial isolates from mung bean sprouts is done in order to determine which antimicrobial agent is to use against specific strains of bacteria. Antibiotic susceptibility of baeterila isolates from mung bean sprouts was examined against 10 antibiotics viz. Ampicillin, Amoxycillin, Ciprofloxacin, Chloramphenicol, Oxacillin, Gentamicin, Voriconazole, Rifampicin, Methicillin, Norfloxacin.
Key words: Mung Bean Sprouts, Bacteril insolates, Antibiotic susceptibility
