Abstract: Spices are vegetable products derived from fruits, seeds, roots and tree barks. They are important mainly as additives to food because of the presence of essential oil having anti-microbial and fungicidal properties. These properties have been used to some degree as the basis for food preservation and as medicinal products for certain types of diseases in Nigeria. This paper takes a look at the microbial load and chemical compositions of some of the compound spices found in Nigeria.Results reveal that some compound spices are highly contaminated with microorganisms.
