Antimicrobial Activity of Saururus chinensis Baill Extract

Koh, M.S.(Chonnam University, Gwangju, Republic of Korea);


In order to develop natural food preservatives, the ethanol and water extracts of the Saururus chinensis Baill were prepared. Antimicrobial activity was examined against 10 kinds of harmful microorganisms. The ethanol and water extracts showed the most active antimicrobial activity against B. subtilis and E. coli. The ethanol extract showed stronger antimicrobial activity than that of the water extract. However, the extracts did not show any antimicrobial activity against lactic acid bacteria and yeast. The minimum inhibitory concentrations (MIC) of ethanol extracts against B. subtilis and E. coli were 5 to 10 mg/mL, respectively. Antimicrobial activity of the ethanol extract was not destroyed at 40~120℃ and pH 3~11.
