ABSTRACT

 The determination of iron content was carried out among selected iron-rich food samples. The samples (Outed pumpkin, garden egg leaves, maize, sweet potatoes and pap) were bought from Ahiaeke, a market in the semi urban region and Amawom, a market in the rural region or lkwuano L.G./\. in Abia State. Nigeria. Statistical analysis was performed using SPSS version 22. ANOVA was also carried out to compare differences for the variables analyzed. All tests were considered signilicant at p value less than 0.05 (p<0.05). The result showed the following mean I standard error: (8.2533 1 0. I 6384) (2.8833 t·0.20480) iron in Outed pumpkin, (5.140010.08718) (6.056710.09821) iron in garden cggs. (2.066710.08333) (3.740010.14295) iron in maize. (4.133310.08819) (1.126710.09333) iron in pap and (2.0033 10.01453) (4.043310.05364) iron in sweet potatoes, for the rural and semi-urban regions respectively. A significant (p<0.05) increase in iron concentration of Outed pumpkin and pap gotten from Ahiacke was observed when compared with their counterparts gotten from Amawom whereas a significant (p<0.05) decrease in iron concentration was observed in garden eggs. maize and sweet potatoes gotten from Ahiaeke when compared to those gotten from Amawom. The result of these findings show that dietary iron from iron-rich foods if adequately and appropriately consumed would increase scrum iron concentration.
