The purpose of this study was to determine the growth of Pseudomonas sp. and Bacillus sp. grown together on skimmed milk media with the addition of liquid whey of tofu. The results showed that the optimum growth of Pseudomonas sp. and Bacillus sp. was found at addition 10% of liquid whey tofu and the increased growth of Bacillus sp. faster than Pseudomonas sp. The optimum of exponential phase was done at 42 hours with the average number of Bacillus sp. 23.54×1010 CFU/ml and Pseudomonas sp. was 67.8×109 CFU/ml.

Key Words: Pseudomonas sp., Bacillus sp., Growing on Liquid Whey Tofu
