Abstract: Coconut fluid and milk obtained from Takum, Taraba State, Owerri, Imo State and Jimeta, Adamawa State were analysed for the presence of the metals Fe, Pb, Cu, and Zn. The determination of their individual concentrations was done using AAS (model VGP 210 bulk scientific) and the results obtained were of the following trends; in coconut fluid, Fe>Zn>Cu>Pb, while in the coconut milk it follows this trend, Fe>>Zn>Cu>Pb. The overall results show that the metal levels were higher in the milk than in the fluid and for all the metals, the values obtained for Takum were generally low compared to those of Owerri and Jimeta.
