In this study, the methodology used for microbiological analysis was based on the methods proposed by the FARMACOPEIA BRASILEIRA (2010), that establishes specifications for plant material that will be submitted to hot extractive processes, as follows: maximum limit of [10.sup.7] CFU/g for counts of mesophilic bacteria, [10.sup.4] CFU/g for molds and yeasts, [10.sup.2] CFU/g for Escherichia coli and absence of Salmonella spp., both in 1g of the plant material.

But most cases of single-organism presence will not lead to an abject contamination because very small numbers of microbes in isolated cases can have very difficult times persisting, even in mesophilic environments.
