Abstract

Heavy metals fHg, Cu, Zn. Cd. Fa, Mn. Pb and Sn) were determined in several brands of three commercially processed canned and frozen molluscan products - mussels, clams and oysters Concentrations of Hg, Cu, Zn, Cd, Pb and Sn were well below the recommended maximum concentrations in clams and mussel products. However, copper and zinc were higher in oyster products: Overall mean concentrations being 56.88 and 178.6 ppm respectively. Products in Aluminium cans were better in quality compared to the products in traditional tin cans. Impact Of heavy metals on the safety and evaluation of colour and flavour for product for acceptability are discussed Depuration studies have been suggested to remove heavy metals from molluscs.
