Estimating the Level of Some Trace Elements in Samples of Canned Foods Spread in the Markets of Ramadi City - Western Iraq
Keywords:trace elements, canned foods, atomic absorption spectroscopy, heavy metals.
Canned food is becoming increasingly popular in the market. In order to assess the level of concentration
of some important elements in samples of these foods, ten different types of canned food were studied. The
concentration level of nine elements (potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron, manganese, copper, zinc, lead
and cadmium) was measured using atomic absorption spectroscopy. The results showed that the highest
concentrations of potassium, magnesium, zinc and lead were in the chickpeas sample. While the highest
concentration of calcium and manganese appeared in the fish sample. As for the elements of iron and
copper, the highest concentration of them was in the olive sample. In the mushroom sample, the highest
concentration of cadmium was shown.
