Abstract:
The aim of our study is focused on evaluating the trace elements level in milk that collected from the retail outlets in and around Chittoor district, Andhra Pradesh. The concentrations of Copper, chromium and Lead were measured using Inductively Coupled Plasma - Optical Emission Spectrometry. The study showed that the concentration of trace elements like chromium, Copper and Lead in 25 milk samples using using Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry method (ICP-OES) were ranged 0-0.002, 0-0.004 and 0.15-0.68 respectively (Table 1) (Fig.1). Cu is found in high levels while Cr, Pb burden occurred in less levels in all milk samples. The averages of the concentration of the heavy metals in egg samples Cr, Pb, Cu were 0.00032, 0.00108 and 0.3632 respectively. Attention should be given to heavy metals as once they are present in concentrations greater than the acceptable daily intake, it may be leads to public health risk.
