Abstract:
With growing international trade, food safety has been emerged as an important global issue. In the context of current global challenges in food safety and security, the study was conducted to assess essential element (K, Mg), trace(Fe, Cu, Zn, Mn,) and toxic(Pb, Cd) in some commercial and local brand fruit and vegetable based food product like Jam, Ketchup and Pickle by using Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer(AAS). Sample were prepared prior to measurement followed by wet ashing method. The result of Fe, Cu, Mn, Zn, Mg and K in the range of 2.073-6.428mg/100g, 0.103-0.297mg/100g, 0.208-0.970mg/100g, 0.325-2.015mg/100g, 18.016-25.666 mg/100g and 90.594-221.330 mg/100g respectively. Lead and Cadmium was not detected in any of Jam, Ketchup, Pickle samples. The essential element K, Mg found more rather than trace metal Fe, Cu, Mn, Zn. The obtained result of the sample were within the acceptable range approved by WHO and do not poses any health hazard.
