ABSTRACT

The nitrate, nitrite, N-nitrosamine and malondialdehyde contents of 36 samples of meat and fish obtained from Umuahia and Umudike, Ahia-state, Nigeria which comprises of twelve samples of suya ( charcoal grilled meat), twelve samples of dried fishes and twelve samples of smoked fishes purchased from different markets situated in Umuahia were analyzed. Nitrite was determined spectrophotometrically. Nitrate and N-nitrosamine were also estimated spectrophotometrically after reduction with cadmium and irradiation with U.V light respectively. In the survey of malondialdehyde contents in meat and fish samples, it was also determined spectrophotometrically. The suya sample from Orie-ugba and dried fish from Isi-gate had the highest malondialdehyde values (0.096 and 0.145 g/g respectively), dried fish from Orie-ugba and smoked fish from Ubani had the highest values (0.536 and 0.561 µgig respectively) for nitrosamines, smoked fish from Orie-ugba and Gate-6 had the highest values for nitrite (1.164 and 1.345 µgig respectively), while only a sample of suya from Isi- gate contained nitrate (0.268 g/g). The results were discussed based from their toxicological and nutritional point of view.
