This work aimed to evaluate zinc content in six common vegetables (parsley, carrot, dill, onion, cucumber and beans), three common fruits (apples, raspberry and dog rose), bees honey and pollen. Determination of zinc content in soil, raw vegetables and fruits, as well as in bees honey and pollen from local apiaries were carried out by FAAS. All experiments and analyses were performed in triplicate. Overall, the highest zinc concentration was found in the leaves (carrot 48.07 mg kg-1, parsley 46.62 mg kg-1, dog rose leaves 36.13 mg kg-1) and beans crops (41.26 mg kg-1). According to our study the highest content occurs in the plants of the Apiaceae Family and in Rosa canina leaves.
