Nitrites levels in all analyzed samples were below of the detection limit (< 0.9 mg/kg) of applied spectrophotometric method with Griess reagent. Nitrates contents in commercial products ranged: 9.1-38.1 mg/kg while in homemade baby foods levels between 26.6 mg/kg and 118.8 mg/kg were obtained. All the contents of nitrates were lower than the E…
