Event Title

DETERMINATION OF MICROELEMENTS IN IMPORTED MILK SAMPLES

Session

Agriculture, Food Science and Technology

Description

Milk and its products are of key importance in nutrition including all ages owing to the fact that it bears distinct nutritional value. The physical and chemical composition of each of the milk core components are interwoven in such a way, that changing conditions in one component causes changes in the other component.

It is worth emphasizing that in Kosovo a large amount of milk is imported from production companies abroad, although Kosovo is capable of fulfilling over 80% of market demand. A very important component of the quality of milk in terms of chemistry is the composition of essential microelements, where very little research is done at the country level.

The underlying objective of the research is to determine some of the essential microelements such as Fe, Mn, Zn, Cu, Cr and Co in imported milk and at country level.

There has been carried out practical work in the UBT research laboratories of the Department of Food Sciences and Biotechnology, by utilizing the instrumental technique AAS (Flame Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy).
