Aim: The aim of the study was to test the antibacterial activity of manuka honey and compare its efficacy with another commercially available honey (Dabur honey) on the cariogenic bacteria onand

Materials and methods: Anstudy was carried out on 40 agar specimens; the samples were divided into two groups of 20 samples consisting of S.andrespectively. The 20 samples in each group were further subdivided into four groups of five each, which were tested with 25% manuka honey, 100% manuka honey, 25% Dabur honey, and 100% Dabur honey for bothandgroups. The antibacterial activity was tested using the agar well diffusion method againstandAntibacterial activity was assessed by measuring the diameter of inhibition of zones surrounding the wells. The results obtained were statistically analyzed (one-way analysis of variance test, p-value).

Results: The results showed that 25% of manuka honey has statistically significant (p≤ 0.001) antibacterial effect than 25% of Dabur honey on bothandspecies, and manuka honey with 100% concentration showed a statistically significant (p≤ 0.001) antibacterial effect than 100% Dabur honey on the same species of bacteria. 100% of both the honeys showed statistically significant (p ≤ 0.001) antibacterial effect than 25% concentrations of the same onand

Conclusion: Manuka honey had more antibacterial activity than Dabur honey onandbacteria in thestudy. This effect was dependent on the concentration of honey used.Beena JP, Sahoo P, Konde S, Raj SN, Kumar NC, Agarwal M. Manuka Honey: A Potent Cariostatic Agent-AnStudy.
