Bromide residues from methyl bromide fumigation of food commodities



Bromide residues from methyl bromide fumigation of food commodities



J Agr Food Chem 16(2): 265-271



Food commodities of a wide variety were fumigated with methyl bromide. Categories of foods fumigated include candy and confections, cereal products, animal products and fats, herbs, spices, beverages, and miscellaneous. A detailed description of an X-ray fluorescence method for determining bromide residues is given. Results of analyses of the foods are given, and a specific residue figure calculated for each. These varied from a high of 115 p.p.m. of bromide deposited per pound of methyl bromide used per 1000 cu. feet for powdered eggs, down to no residue deposited in a few of the foods.
