Abstract

This study was conducted to determine the effects of Oral Administration of Environmentally Exposed Malted Product (Maltina Brand) on Some Biochemical Parameters in Albino-Rats. Maltina products packaged with two different materials (metal can and plastic) were exposed to sunlight for seven days and fifteen days, while the control sample was not exposed to the environment. They were evaluated for alkaline phosphatase, alanine transferase, and aspartate aminotransferase of the albino rats; lipid peroxidation, liver function tests (albumin, direct and total bilirubin) of the albino rats. 24 adult male albino rats were used for the study. Results obtained showed that there was significant changes (P < 0.05) in concentration of AST, ALT and ALP for the period of the experiment. There was significant changes in Lipid peroxidation (P < 0.05) in all the groups. Bilirubin level was affected significantly (P < 0.05). Therefore, display/storage of food products should place premium on the environmental factors of the area.
