Tomato Juice Broth

Intended Use

Tomato Juice Broth is used for cultivating yeasts and other aciduric microorganisms.

Summary and Explanation

In 1925, Mickle and Breed1 reported the use of tomato juice in culture media used for cultivating lactobacilli. Kulp2 investigated the use of tomato juice on bacterial development and found that the growth of L. acidophilus was enhanced. Tomato Juice Agar, prepared according to Kulp and White’s3 modification, is especially useful in cultivating L. acidophilus from clinical specimens and foodstuffs.4
Tomato Juice Broth is recommended for use in cultivating and isolating yeasts, lactobacilli and other aciduric microorganisms from clinical specimens and foods.

Principles of the Procedure

Tomato Juice Broth
Tomato juice is a source of carbon, protein and nutrients. Yeast extract is a source of trace elements, vitamins and amino acids. Dipotassium phosphate and monopotassium phosphate provide buffering capability. Magnesium sulfate, ferrous sulfate and manganese sulfate provide inorganic ions. Sodium chloride is a source of essential ions.
