A Study on Some Vitamins and Minerals Content of Wheat Flour Samples Commonly Sold Within Kano Metropolitant

Abdullahi Abdulkadir

Vitamin A, C and some minerals were analysed in five (5) different samples of wheat flour that are commonly found in Kano metropolis. Out of the five samples only Golden penny were found with the lowest concentration of Vitamin A content, all the rest are within the normal range (375 - 1300g/kg). The Vitamin C content in the five (5) wheat flour samples showed that Supreme had lowest concentration of vitamin C (13.80mg/kg) and Golden penny had the highest (92.40mg/kg), the rest are within the normal range (30 - 95mg/kg). The concentration of Zn is significantly higher in Honey well (4.50mg/kg) and Dangote (4.33mg/kg) then the rest. The concentration of Cu is higher in Golden penny (0.59mg/kg) and BUA (0.42mg/kg), the rest are below the range. Higher concentration of Fe in Golden penny (3.72mg/kg) and Honey well (3.12mg/kg) then the rest. Higher concentration of Mg in Golden penny (30.08mg/kg) and BUA (29.96mg/kg). The concentration of Na, K, Ca, Mn, was higher in Golden penny then the other samples. Therefore Golden penny contain significant amount of mineral elements and Supreme as such can be used as nutritionally sources.
