Limiting the intake of nitrite and nitrate is necessary because of the toxicity of these anions. These anions in high amounts were linked with toxicological problems as: methemoglobinaemia. Currently, the conventional determination of nitrate and nitrite is done by colorimetric assay, ion chromatography, etc. This nitrate rapid test strip is a new paper based rapid assay to detect nitrate in milk, milk powder and other liquid sample. It is fast, sensitive and specific.
