Bread produced with selenium-enriched yeast was given to ten volunteers. The daily dose contained approximately 100 micrograms of selenium. The subjects' mean baseline whole blood selenium concentration (52.2 +/- 16.7 micrograms/l) was indicative of a suboptimal selenium status. After two weeks of supplementation, the subjects' mean whole blood selenium level increased significantly (to 66.1 +/- 11.9 micrograms/l). Supplementation of selenium-enriched bread seems to be an easily implementable and promptly acting method of selenium status improvement.
