Abstract :

Yoghurt was produced from African yam bean and studied. Milk was extracted from whole and dehulled seed African yam bean seeds, pasteurized and fermented with yoghurmet (a commercial yoghurt culture of Streptococcus thermophilus and Lactobacillus bulgaricus). Microbial qualities of the yam bean yoghurt samples were evaluated to determine the microbiological quality of the products. Microbial load decreased significantly (p<0.05) with increase in storage time. Bacterial species isolated from the yoghurt samples wereLactobacillus sp and Streptococcus sp. Spoilage by yeast were also noted at room temperature.
