Selenium enriched eggs

A balanced diet is of key importance for the promotion of human health. Among the essential nutrients, Selenium has been shown to be deficient in many countries throughout the world. A Selenium deficiency, in animals as well as in humans, is associated with a compromised immunity system and an increased susceptibility to various viral and bacterial diseases. The production of Se-enriched eggs is an effective approach to limit a Selenium deficiency in humans.


Selenium deposition in eggs

Selenium (Se) is an essential nutrient and antioxidant that participates in protective metabolic processes against lipid, protein and DNA oxidation.
