Sažetak
Ninety one samples of medicinal herbs separated in two groups (seeds and fruits and roots) were collected from markets, pharmacies and drugstores in Zagreb. They were investigated for the presence of yeasts and moulds. Samples were pretty more contaminated with moulds (69.23%) than with yeasts (6.6%). The results indicate that seeds and fruits are a better substrate for mycological growth (total of 8.51% samples was contaminated with yeasts and 72.34% with moulds) than roots (4.55%, 65.91%). The most prevalent genus among yeasts was Cryptococcus laurentii. The most prevalent genera among moulds were Aspergillus (61.9 %), Penicillium (34.92 %) and Rhizopus (34.92 %). Among Aspergillus species A. glaucus (30 %) A. niger (25 %) and A. fumigatus (15 %) were the most prevalent, while others occurred with less frequency. Despite of the considerable qualitative diversity of species, the total yeast/mould count (TYMC/g) was <103 which is in accordance to European Pharmacopoeia limits.
