    The physical properties such as: density, refractive index, viscosity, and acidity of samples of olive oil from different geographical locations and heights in Palestine were measured. The measured physical properties are in agreement with the international and local assigned value. The concentration of Al, Cd, Cu, Fe, K, Mg, Mn, Na, Ni, Pb and Zn elements in olive oil samples are measured by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry ICP-MS. It was found that Magnesium (Mg) is the most concentrated metal detected (294.738-782.968 μg/g), followed by concentration of sodium (Na) (73.401-390.699 μg/g) and potassium (K) (18.473-168.883 μg/g). Concentrations of iron, copper and lead in Palestinian olive oil don’t agree with concentration of International Olive Council (IOC). The differences in concentration in metals of olive oil depend on several factors among the type o.. Read More»
