Clostridium botulinum is a species of anaerobic, spore-forming, rod-shaped bacteria that produces a protein with a characteristic neurotoxicity. C. botulinum cultures fall into three distinct groups by properties other than the toxin type they produce, with each group composed only of strains having similar cultural and physiological characteristics. Proteolysis i.e. ability to digest coagulated egg white or meat, is one of the differentiating characteristic. Tryptone Peptone Glucose Yeast Extract (TPGY) Broth is formulated as per recommendation of APHA, for the determination of toxicity of Clostridium botulinum cultures in food.
