Nitrate and nitrite contents of 23 fresh vegetables, obtained from retail markets, are reported. Ranges of nitrate values (fresh wt. basis) were 310-3086 p.p.m. for 6 leafy vegetables, 65-2920 p.p.m. for 10 roots/tubers/bulbs, and 70-512 p.p.m. for 7 other vegetables. Some samples of mustard Raya (Brassica campestris) green leaves contained up to 3750 p.p.m. nitrate. The nitrite contents in the 3 groups of vegetables were generally low, with ranges of 2.5-4.7, 0.7-5.1 and 2.1-3.7 p.p.m., resp. The highest content, 5.8 p.p.m., occurred in some samples of mustard Raya green leaves and black carrots.
