Assessment of microbiological load of kunun zaki sold in some Kano south markets revealed that the pH of the product ranges from 3.63 to 4.10 for sample E and sample A, the total bacterial count ranges from 1.3x102 to 9.0x102 cfu/cm3 for sample H and sample G, the total fungal count was found to be high in sample A (8.0x10-1 cfu/ cm3) compared to others samples. The MPN was found to be highest in sample D and lowest in sample B, C, H, and I respectively. The physical characterization of the microorganisms revealed that the sample contained Gram negative Bacilli, Gram positive Staphylococci, Gram negative Staphylococci, Mucor hiemalis, Rhizopus nigricaris, and Aspergillus respectively. From the result of this research work needs to enlighten the producers and sellers of the product to improve the hygiene so as to prevent the spread of the contamination. ...
