Abstract

The determination of the seven elements was performed by Perkin Elmer Atomic Absorption (AA) spectrophotometer. The present study highlights the importance of seven heavy metals residual concentration including Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni and Zn in milk of Camel, Cattle, Buffalo, Sheep and Goat from various areas of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK), Pakistan. It revealed that milk of camel comprising of high levels of Zn (5.150 ± 0.021 mg/kg), Mn (0.094 ± 0.003 mg/kg) and Fe (1.580 ± 0.530 mg/kg) with a definite correlation. In the milk of buffalo, high concentration of noxious heavy metals including Cu (0.223 ± 0.010 mg/kg) and Cd (0.117 ± 0.086 mg/kg) were found whereas in goat milk, high Ni (1.152 ± 0.045 mg/kg) and Cr (1.152 ± 0.045 mg/kg) was observed and detected. The analysis showed that camel and buffalo have similar high concentration of heavy metals. Overall results showed that milk of cattle shows higher concentration of Zn, Mn and Fe along with Buffalo.
