Food-borne diseases have always been a major concern to the consumers, food safety authorities and food industries. Hylocereus spp or Pitaya peels are normally treated as wastes and will be discarded during processing. In this study, the antibacterial activity of ethanol, chloroform and hexane extracts from Hylocereus polyrhizus (red flesh pitaya) and Hylocereus undatus (white flesh pitaya) peels against nine pathogens was evaluated using disc diffusion method and broth micro-dilution method…

Antimicrobial effected of red dragon(Hylocereus polyrhizus) on bacterial isolated from frozen meat
The present study pointed to estimated the validation of red dragon fruit (Hylocereus polyrhizus) extracts against three microbial pathogens (Staph. E.coli and Salmonella )isolated from frozen meat
Cytotoxicity and Antiplasmodial Properties of Different Hylocereus polyrhizus Peel Extracts
The observations have elucidated the cytotoxic and antiplasmodial activity of the peel of dragon fruits and can be used as a foundation for further research into the isolation and bioactivity of secondary metabolites.
Antimicrobial activity of bBanana (Musa paradisiaca L.) peels against food borne pathogenic microbes
Banana peel waste’s extracts could be potential antimicrobial alternatives and may be effective to utilize as a natural source of antimicrobial agent in pharmaceutical industries.
Antibacterial and antioxidant activities of Physalis peruviana and Hyphaene thebaica extracts
Ethanol extract of Physalis peruviana and water extract of Hyphaene thebaica were tested for their inhibitory effects on eight bacterial strains (Escherichia coli, Proteus mirabilis, Salmonella
Antibacterial Activity of Red Dragon Peel (Hylocereus polyrhizus) Pigment
Red dragon fruit (Hylocereus polyrhizus) is a species of plant that provides natural pigment which is betalain. Betalain is a one of the pigments that gives a natural colour to flowers and fruits.
The potential use of bacterial endophytes recovered from tropical fruits to control foodborne pathogens
The culturable bacterial community from tropical fruits and their ability to reduce and/or inhibit the growth of L. monocytogenes and C. sakazakii is investigated.
Chili is an important vegetable fruit but is commonly attacked by anthracnose disease during field or storage. A current practical method to control this disease is through synthetic fungicides.
Comparative Study on Hylocereus Polyrhizus Peels Extract and Aloe barbadensis Leaves Extract as Potential Natural-based Sources in Antibacterial and Antioxidant Activities

In this work, the study of Dragon (Hylocereus undatus) properties was done by studying phytochemical screening, trace element and antioxidant activity. The analyzed of fruit extract by using Gas
Potential uses of Hylocereus undatus (Haworth) Britton & Rose byproducts: antimicrobial activity and flavonoid content from aerial parts extracts
The study demonstrated that H. undatus byproducts can be used as a source of antifungal agents as well as anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial agents.


Fruit flesh betacyanin pigments in hylocereus cacti.
Fruits of H. polyrhizus exhibited the highest relative concentration (expressed as percentage of the total HPLC peak area) of hylocerenin, a recently discovered pigment, and a high relative concentration of phyllocactin, which might explain the differences in red hues of the flesh of these fruits.
Antioxidant and antimicrobial activities of crude extracts from mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana L.) parts and some essential oils
The antioxidant and antimicrobial activities of the extracts from peel, leaves, and bark of mangosteen, and some essential oils such as cinnamon and citrus were investigated, and citrus oil showed effect on only S. aureus.
In Vitro and In Vivo Antibacterial Activity of Punica granatum Peel Ethanol Extract against Salmonella
Investigation of in vitro and in vivo antimicrobial activity of P. granatum peel EtOH extract against 16 strains of Salmonella indicates that PGPE has the potential to provide an effective treatment for salmonellosis.
