Abstract

This paper ‘Investigation of metallic element deposition and contamination of some food product processed by wet milling’ was carried out to determine the levels of Wear Elements introduced into food consumed by humans after being wet milled. Samples were collected from a selected milling house in Daniya area of Bali, Taraba State Nigeria and were analyzed. The presence of heavy metal such as Lead (Pb) and some amount of trace elements such as; Iron (Fe), Copper (Cu) and Zinc (Zn) contents in milled beans, millet, maize, tomatoes, pepper and onions were determined using Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry technique.
