Abstract

The results shows existence of metals such as copper, iron, Cadmium, lead and zinc in most of examined samples , the highest concentration are up to (2.26, 40.82, 282.5, 31.02, 19.26, 4.34) Part per million) ppm) in pasta hot (Zer brand), Indomie with chicken, granule (Zer brand), brand (Zer brand), and rice (mahmood brand) respectively, with presence nickel in spaghetti( Zer brand), granule, Zer brand with concentration reached to 4.34 ppm and 1.06 ppm respectively.
The results of cereals group and its products show that two kinds of fungi, Aspergillus spp. and Penicillin spp. were found in rice (Mahmood brand) with numbers got to 1.5×103 Colony Forming Unit/ gram (c.f.u./g),while Bacillus cereus and Staphylococcus aureus were isolated from Spaghetti (Zer brand) with numbers got to 2×102, and 4×102, c.f.u/g ,and Clostridium Perfringens and Escherichia coli were from pasta (Zer brand),with numbers got to 1×10, 6×102 c.f.u/g, it was noticed that bulgur (Zer brand) was polluted with penicillium spp., and the number of yeasts and molds got to 1.5×103 c.f.u./g.
It was found that Escherichia coil and Staphylococcus aureus are found in pasta (Zer brand) with numbers got to 1×10, and 6×102 g/c.f.u, in addition to Aspergillus spp., the numbers of Bacillus subtitus and Escherichia coil, which polluted granule(Zer brand) 1.1×10 and 5×102 c.f.u/g as well as Aspergillus spp.The number of yeasts and molds in Indomie with chicken got to 1.1×102 c.f.u/g and fungus, Aspergillus spp., was also isolated from it.
