Abstract

Due to consumer awareness of the chemical preservatives hazards, public reception the need for medicinal plants is growing recently. In most countries contamination of food products with pathogenic bacteria (especially Salmonella) are followed by health and nutritional losses. Also, due to increasing to drug resistance in pathogenic microorganisms, replacement antibiotics with the natural antimicrobial compounds from plants are convenient and useful. In this review article, anti-bacterial effects of Iranian indigenous medicinal plants against Salmonella (during 2000 to 2016) have been investigated. This article reviewed data from 269 articles originating from WHO, Civilica, Magiran, SID, Elsevier, Science direct and PubMed etc., using the keywords essential oil, salmonella, antimicrobial activity, antibiotic alternative. These findings suggest that antibacterial activity of the Iranian indigenous medicinal plants against Salmonella was remarkably better than chemical drugs. Replacement of synthetic antibiotics with antimicrobial substances of plant origin is more essential.
