Exposure of heavy metals to humans has risen continuously through the contaminated diet. The objective of the research is to determine the concentration of Cu, Cr, Ni, Pb, Co and Cd in dry fruits. Ten samples of dry fruits i.e Almond (P. amygdalus), Hazelnut (C. Vellanus), Dates (Phoenix dactylifera), Cashew nuts (Anacardium occidentale), Walnuts (Juglans nigra), Raisins (Vitis Vinifera), Peanuts (Arachis hypogeaea),, Apricot (Prunus armeniaca), Figs (F. macrophylla) and pistachio (P. Vera) was collected and studied the effect of microwave roasting and storage on heavy metal concentration.
