ABSTRACT:
The aim of this investigation was to determine dependences between the processes of cadmium sorption and magnesium desorption in black currant pomace fibre preparations and their compositions with apple pomace, as well as to assess the suitability of fibre compositions as selective metal sorbents (Cd, Mg) in selected foodstuffs. It was found that fibre preparations possess a high cadmium binding capacity (about 35% on the average) and that the characteristic property of these materials is their ability to desorb magnesium. On the basis of a statistical analysis of the investigation results it may be concluded that interactions between Mg and Cd occurred in the pomace preparations tested.
