The purpose of this research is to study the natural radioisotopes in different Iraqi food as well as various fission products emitted during nuclear accidents worldwide. This work investigated different food stuffs like flour rice, sugar, salt dates, okras, lentil, cauliflowers and broad beans. The detection system used in this study employs Ge (Li)detector connected to a multi-channel analyser. The radioactivity concentration in measured samples has been estimated. Traces of radioisotopes such as (K,Th,CS, U) potassium, Thorium, Caesium and Uranium have been
