ABSTRACT

The effect of three cooking utensils on the iron contents of common staples in Owo was investigated. Chemical and instrumental analysis to test the amount and effect of cooking utensils was carried out on four foods from different groups using Atomic absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS).

Therefore, there is need for bio fortification of Nigerian staples call for attention by policy maker and research institute that are concerned.
