Abstract

Four kinds of cereals- wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), barley (Hordeum sativum L.), triticosecale (Triticosecale sativum L.) and oat (Avena sativa L) were taken from risk region of Slovakia in order to determine risk elements content in individual parts of grain. The results indicate significant differences in the content of the risk elements in four mill streams. Among observed cereals the highest content of risk metals decreased in order: oat>barley>triticosecale >spring wheat>winter wheat. Significant high contents of Pb and Cd were confirmed especially in some mill streams (MF III and MF IV) during all period of research. Results of baking trial confirmed there excess content of the same risk elements which were detected in mill products used for baking.
