Probiotic organisms play a major role in making the intestine a home for several beneficial organisms and a barrier for pathogens. In the present investigation one of the probiotic isolate Leuconostoc pseudomesenteroides was selected by their potentiality. And the red powder N is a food dye a dark red powder with weak typical flavor. It imparts bright and red colour to food stuffs. In this study the mice were divided into four groups with five animals in each group. Here a group one was a control. Group two was administered with Leuconostoc pseudo mesenteroides (1×107 CFU/ml/day) in drinking water daily until 42 days. Group three were supplied with bakery dye red powder N at a dose of 400 mg/kg body weight along with normal diet. Group four were supplied with Leuconostoc pseudomesenteroides(1×107 CFU/ml/day) in drinking water and bakery dye red powder N dose of 400 mg/kg body weight along with normal diet. The animals were observed daily for general health conditions such as body weight, feed conversion ratio, relative weight of organ colon, drinking water consumption and CNS activity of mice. Supplementation of probiotic Leuconostoc pseudomesenteroides in diet through drinking water showed an improvement in the live weight and FCR of mice.
