Glucose agar allows for the detection of glucose fermentation (with or without gas production) as an identification test for Enterobacteriaceae (ISO 21528) and B.cereus (ISO 7932). It is further enriched by the addition of Yeast Extract. Bromocresol Purple is also included and acts as an indicator of glucose fermentation.
