PONTARA, André Venturini et al. Microbiological monitoring mf mineral water commercialized in Brazil. Braz. J. Microbiol. [online]. 2011, vol.42, n.2, pp.554-559. ISSN 1517-8382.

The quality of mineral water commercialized in Brazil regarding the microbial content was analyzed and the results were compared with the standards established by the current legislation. Results demonstrated there was no bacterial contamination, but several types of fungi were found. Therefore, bottled mineral water could be considered a possible route for the transmission of filamentous fungi and yeasts.

Palavras-chave : Mineral water; microbial contamination; membrane filter technique; fungi.
