Abstract : African Locust Bean (Parkia biglobosa) is among the leguminous plants used by man particularly in some African countries for the production of local condiment. Samples of locust bean were fermented under laboratory conditions to produce condiment by using cultures of B. subtiilis, B. licheniformis and M. varians that were previously isolated from locally fermented daddawa. The isolates were prepared at various concentrations of 0.2, 0.5 and 0.8 respectively. The pH and temperature were recorded at twelve hour interval. Fermentation has occurred in all the concentration of inoculum used as starter culture. Best fermentation with right organoleptic properties (aroma/flavor) was achieved in all the concentration used in the fermentation. The consortium of three isolates yielded best result in the laboratory fermentation.
