Abstract:
In this paper was evaluated the macro elements content in sodium (Na), potassium (K), calcium (Ca) and magnesium (Mg) in 18 fruit samples collected from three different areas (6 samples for each area), the locality Gotlob from Timis County. The samples analyzed were: Apples (Malus domestica), Watermelon (Citrullus lanatus), Plums (Prunus), Cherry (Prunus avium), Sour cherry (Prunus Cerasus) and Melon (Cucumis melo). The solutions obtained were analyzed using an Atomic Absorption Spectrometer - Varian 280 FS SpectrAAVariant. The macro elements content was expressed on dry weight (d.w.), obtained after drying process. The samples analyzed presented a high content in potassium element with the highest value recorded in sample Sour cherry source 3 (8.688 g/Kg dw), followed by sodium element with the highest value recorded in sample Melon source 3 (1.745 g/Kg dw), the magnesium element with the highest value recorded in sample Watermelon source 2 (0.567 g/Kg d.w), and the calcium elements with the highest value recorded in sample Melon source 2 (0.24 g/Kg d.w.).
