Total of samples were 36 samples from two types of foods, that was defined using purposive sampling method. Type of food, category of wrappings and time of serving were found out using observation and inspection, whereas the concentration of lead in food was measured using Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer method.Results : The average concentration of lead was measured for each type of food, it was 4.85 ppm for kue lapis (multi-layered cake) and 5.39 ppm for gethuk lindri (noodle-like cassava cake). The average concentration of lead in food that was completely wrapped was 2.91 ppm, whereas for food that was only one-half wrapped was 8.01 ppm.
