Comparison Study of Trace and Toxic Minerals in Local and Imported Rice in Sulaimaniâ€“ Iraq
Keywords:Kurdistan, Ration Card, Trace Minerals, Atomic Absorption Spectrometry
Trace and toxic minerals level in eight varieties of (Oryza sativa L.) from Sulaimani, Iraq were determined by Atomic Absorption spectrometry. The content of trace minerals in Iraqi and Imported rice were found in the ranges:0.566 â€“ 0.04 mg/kg for Iron, 10.29 â€“ 0.001 mg/kg for Zinc, 0.036 â€“ 0.007 mg/kg for Copper, 0.035 â€“0.001 mg/kg for Cadmium, 0.62 â€“ 0.01 mg/kg for Lead. Results obtained are in accord with data reported by WHO/FAO.
