The human health benefits of dietary selenium (Se) and iron (Fe) are well established (Rayman, 1997; Kristensen et al., 2005).  Meat and meat products are primary sources of dietary Se and iron for humans. Pork from Se and Fe supplemented pigs may provide an additional source of these nutrients. However, the effects of supplementation of Se and iron on their status in muscles and effects on p...

I have a question? :
The stability of fatty acids may alter the quality of the pig meat that has undergone working.
As antioxidants in pig meals, is it better to supplement omega 3 (extruded linseed) or a selenium supplement + Vitamin E?
What's more about meat quality traits (Ph,color, drip loss) and conversion index?

Dear S.D. Jayasooriya et al!
Prof. V. S. Kryukov welcomes you!
I wrote a great review on selenium – it will be interesting to You. Unfortunately, I only write in Russian. However, You can translate it into English using your computer. The journal does not provide articles for free access.
If you provide your address, I will send you the article.
To begin with, there is a great deception: chemists in the field of organic chemistry will not be able to understand by this name what with they are talking about, because in organic chemistry there is no substance corresponding to this name. You can check at any University in the Department of organic chemistry.
Really, think about it: SELENO-me-TIO-nine, and where in this substance is TIO (sulfur)? It is replaced by SELENO- (selenium). On this basis the correct name of the substance: the me-SELENO-nin or meselenonine. The name "Selenomethionine" was invented for advertising purposes and, unfortunately, it has taken root and is used without thinking in scientific articles.
