Lebanese pita extracts with presence of trace elements: hazard assessment

Abstract : Among Trace Elements (TE) that can be present in food, some are known to be toxic and must be monitored. Regarding food safety, it is relevant to study the case of the pita, since it represents a large part of the daily diet of the Lebanese population. In a previous study, the Lebanese Agricultural Research Institute (LARI) analyzed the presence of several TE (arsenic, cadmium, cobalt, chromium, mercury, nickel and lead) in white Lebanese pita. Although the toxicity of each TE is known individually, it is important to test the toxicity of the mixture of TE, present in the bread, in order to check the presence of "cocktail" effects between TE, especially synergism.
