Abstract

Different food preparations have been tested for support of growth of the bacteria Streptococcus mutans in vitro both before and after chewing. Fish fry and the sweet dishes-kesari baath and kadla payiasa-supported the growth of S. mutans maximally, whereas bananas and potato chips did not support growth at all. All other foodstuffs supported from mild (dosa, upma) to moderate (rice preparations, yogurt) degrees. Dosa and upma supported growth of S. mutans to a greater extent after chewing, whereas in all other cases, chewing did not further enhance the growth.
