Prabhawati Tiwari, Preeti Naithani* and Jay Krishna Tiwari

ABSTRACT

The present study was aimed to determine the metal analysis in the honey samples from Garhwal Himalaya (India). A total of thirty honey samples were collected from different parts of Garhwal Himalaya and analyzed for metals (lead, manganese, iron, copper, zinc, nickel and cadmium) by (Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry) ICP-MS method. The average levels of metals were found between 0.00408–0.114437 μg/g for Pb, 0.022439–0.22762 μg/g for Mn, 0.950132–3.240654 μg/g for Fe, 0.011461–0.096664 μg/g for Cu, 0.129515–1.500897 μg/g for Zn, 0.011109–0.067599 μg/g for Ni and 0.002302 – 0.013221 μg/g for Cd. The findings of the study indicate that all these metals present were within the range of permitted and satisfactory level of Codex Alimentarius Commission. Thus the honey being produced in different zones of Garhwal Himalaya is suitable for human consumption.

Keywords: Metals, honey samples, ICP-MS, Garhwal Himalaya.
