Abstract

This study aimed to test for the viable presence of any mutagen in commercially produced vinegars in the market by examining the morphological changes of chromosomes in Allium fistulosum thru standard mutagen test using Allium fistulosum as test subject. The researchers prepared multiplier onions (Allium fistulosum) to test the presence of mutagens in 3 selected cane vinegars. Observations were based on root growth and physical features of the chromosomes. Data gathered that only the T0 tap water and T1, 5.5 ml cane vinegar have roots. The T2, T3 and T4 had nothing. Based on the findings, the researchers conclude that the three selected vinegars have no effect on the number of chromosomes on multiplier onion. The higher the concentration of the 3 selected vinegar the lesser chance of root germination. Also, the 3 selected vinegars do not affect the metaphase stage. However, anaphase stage is greatly affected.
