The research was conducted on 18 samples of RYO tobacco. The density (CFU/g a.d.s.) of three heterotrophic groups of microorganisms and some physical-chemical indicators were determined. The analyses were performed according to classic methods. Quantitative and qualitative changes at the microbiome as a result of disruption of homeostasis in microbial communities and development of secondary succession in the direction of intensive mineralization processes were found. Statistically significant correlation dependences with the physical-chemical parameters were registered. In addition to a potential risk in term of sanitary-hygiene and health aspects, the changes also have a negative impact on the consumer qualities of tobacco blends.
