ABSTRACT
The aim of the present study was to calculate in vitro antimicrobial activity of Berberis asiatica fruit extracts against 13 Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria and fungus strains. The ethanolic fruit extracts of Berberis asiatica showed significant activity 15±1mm, 14±1mm and 13±1mm against Streptococcus pyogenes, Streptococcus aureus and Bacillus cereus against food poisoning bacteria and fungus, Development of a product with nutritional profile and secondary metabolites as a model, a wild edible fruit of Himalaya (Berberis asiatica) was screened. The fruits have been found to rich in nutrients such as crude protein1.3%, carbohydrates17.39%, crude fiber3.4%, ash content1.25% and minerals as calcium, magnesium, potassium and phosphorus (1.0, 8.4, 1.98 and 0.24 mg/100g) respectively, vit. A Vit. C and secondary metabolites were carried out by using standard analytical techniques. These analyses revealed that, the fruits contained higher value of fat, protein, fiber and minerals as compared to the cultivated fruits. 200 gm fruits contain sufficient amount of nutrients, required per day by a person.
