To address the ever increasing resistance of pathogens and need of safer preservatives for food products, herbs are being explored for antimicrobial properties. Methanolic extract of Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare Miller) was analyzed for the presence of polyphenolic compounds, flavonoids and antibacterial potential. The extract, rich in flavonoids (9.325 ± 1.25 mg QE/g dry seeds) was subjected to HPLC analysis for identification and quantification of phenolics. Gallic acid (277.131μg), caffeic…
