Dried ginger (ginger peel, peeled and unpeeled ginger) extracts were produced using acetone, and subjected to antimicrobial and anti-oxidative properties. In the antimicrobial assay using agar well diffusion technique the extracts were inoculated with five different organisms (Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella typhimurium, Aspergillus niger and Bacillus subtilis) at different concentrations of 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5 ml, respectively, which were compared with the zero (0.00 ml…
