The microbiological quality of ice-cream samples collected from co-operative, branded private and non-branded sectors sold in and around Greater Hyderabad Municipal Co-operation, Telangana state was studied. The standard plate count, coliform count, faecal coliform count and yeast and mould counts were 2.51x105 CFU/gm, 8.05x102CFU/gm, 2.57x102CFU/gm, and 2.66x102CFU/gm from cooperative sector, 3.08x105 CFU/gm, 2.2x103 CFU/gm, 9.57x102 CFU/gm and 3.87x103 CFU/gm from branded private sector, 4.99x107 CFU/gm, 9.68x105 CFU/gm, 4.32x104 CFU/gm and 4.28x104 CFU/gm from non-branded sector respectively. The incidence of Staphylococcus spp. was 60% from co-operative sector, 53% from branded private sector and 100% from non-branded sector. The incidence of Salmonella spp. was 40%, 73%, 90% from co-operative, branded private, and non-branded sectors respectively.
