Abstract : The word ‘aloe’ has its roots in the Arabic word ‘alloeh’, which means ‘radiance’. A native plant of Somalia with a history dating back to the fourth century B.C, Aloe Vera also figures prominently in Egyptian, Chinese, Greek, Indian and Christian literature. The Arabs have a tradition of placing it at graves as a symbol of regeneration and resurrection, the African hunters used its gel as a deodorant. Aloe Vera is witnessing a new renaissance across the world (Atherton, 1998). Aloe Vera is called Kumari or Goddess because many of the East Indian women use it daily to maintain beauty and counteract the symptoms of aging. Aloe Vera is still widely used to help treat burns and wounds (Guraya, 2007). Plant based foods, such as fruit, vegetables, and whole grains, which contain significant amounts of bioactive phytochemicals, may provide desirable health benefits beyond basic nutrition to reduce the risk of chronic diseases (National Academy of Sciences, 2000). Food preservation is the process of treating and handling food in a way that preserves its value as food. The main effort is to stop or greatly slow down spoilage to prevent foodborne illness (Deeley, 2006). Pineapple is an excellent source of vitamin C and manganese. It is also a good source of vitamin B1, vitamin B6, copper and dietary fiber (Fortin, 1996). Papaya is an excellent source of vitamin C. It is a very good source of folate and potassium. In addition, it is a good source of dietary fiber, vitamin E, vitamin A and vitamin K. The papaya is an amazingly rich source of the proteolytic enzymes. These are the chemicals that enable the digestion of protein. Papain, which is the most important of these enzymes in the papaya, is extracted and dried as a powder for use to aid the digestion, and it is often used as a meat tenderizer (Maxwell et al., 1994).

Abstract : In this study the antibacterial activity of Emblica officinalis Gaertn. was evaluated against E. coli, Salmonella typhi, Salmonella paratyphi, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus sp., Proteus sp., Pseudomonas sp. and Klebsiella sp. The antibacterial activity was determined in aqueous extracts of fruits, seed, stem, leaves and root of Emblica officinalis. Aqueous extracts of all parts effectively inhibited the growth of the test bacteria except for the root extract. All the eight strains of bacteria were resistant to the aqueous root extract. Staphylococcus aureus exhibited the maximal antibacterial activity against the fruit extract of Emblica followed by leaf, seed and stem extracts. Minimum activity of the extracts was observed against Salmonella paratyphi. The bactericidal activities of extracts of Emblica officinalis were comparatively assayed against major antibiotics acting in different modes against bacteria.
