The study of antibacterial activity of water extract of butterfly pea (clitoria ternatea) seeds
Food-Borne diseases are still a major problem to the world, even in developedrncountry, for example according to WHO, Salmonellosis which caused by Salmonellarnis one of the most common food-borne disease that made millions of cases every yearrnworldwide (WHO, 2005). The purpose of this research was to determine thernantibacterial activity of water extract of the Butterfly Pea (Clitorea ternatea) seedsrnagainst Staphylococcus aureus, Listeria monocytogenes, and Salmonella typhimurium.rnThe methodology used to determine the antibacterial activity on tested bacteria wasrndisk-diffusion by measuring the diameter of zone of inhibition. The result of thisrnresearch was the positive antibacterial activity from mature seed extract as growthrninhibitor on Salmonella typhimurium with diameter of inhibition zone as big as 3.331rnmm ┬▒ 1.942.
