Microplastic pollution threat in table salt that an abiotic sea product
Abiyotik bir su ürünü olan sofra tuzunda mikroplastik kirliliği tehlikesi

In the nature, the plastics are broken down to smaller pieces, producing microplastics (<5mm), through exposure to elements such as air, wind, sunlight, water, as well as due to anthropogenic effects. Microplastic pollution is a problem that we are just beginning to understand. Even though an increase in the number of studies on microplastic pollution in the environment and in water has seen some increase recently, studies focusing on microplastic pollutions in food, and their effect on health are few and far between. Table salt is obtained from natural resources such as the sea, lakes, and rocks (wells), using very simple production techniques. As an abiotic aquatic product, salt is a widely used foodstuff, constituting one leg of the so-called “three whites”. The present study analyzed the level of microplastic pollution in tablesalts (food), deemed a basic foodstuff, and procured from the supermarkets in Turkey. The analyses revealed that the microplastic counts observed in table salt samples are not negligible at all. The amounts of average MP in rock salt, sea salt and lake salt were found to be 28, 56 and 63, respectively.

Plastiklerin tabiatta parçalara ayrılması dolayısıyla da mikroplastiklerin (<5mm) oluşması doğal olarak hava, rüzgar, güneş ve su akışı etkileriyle ve/veya antropojenik etkilerle gerçekleşebilir. Mikroplastik kirliliği günümüzde yeni anlaşılan bir konudur. Son zamanlarda çevrede ve sulardaki mikroplastik kirliliği konusunda yapılmış çalışmalar artsa da gıdalardaki mikroplastik kirliliği ve sağlığa etkileri açısından yapılmış pek fazla çalışma bulunmamaktadır. Yemek tuzu, basit üretim teknikleri ile deniz, göl ve kaya (kuyu) gibi doğal kaynaklardan temin edilmektedir. Abiyotik bir su ürünü olan tuz, günlük hayatta çok kullanılan ve “üç beyaz” olarak bilinen gıda maddelerinden biridir. Yapılan bu çalışmada ülkemizdeki marketlerden alınan ve temel gıda maddelerinden biri olan sofra (yemek) tuzlarındaki mikroplastik kirliliği incelenmiştir. İncelemeler sonucunda yemeklik tuz içerisinde bulununan mikroplastik sayısının hiçte azımsanamayacak miktarda olduğu anlaşılmıştır. Kaya tuzlarında ortalama 28, deniz tuzlarında 56 ve göl tuzlarında 63 MP/200g tespit edilmiştir.
