Se-Biofortified Alfalfa for Se-enriched Dairy products
vision for the future
about our project
Optimizing the concentration and bioavailability of Se in milk and dairy
As a result of climate change, trace concentrations of
selenium in soils are likely to decrease, risking an increase in selenium deficiency for many regions of the world
Fighting the health issues derived from Se-deficient diets by producing Se-enriched
dairy products from Se-biofortified hay, introduced as a natural source of nutrients into the milking cows’ diet.
The elaboration of Se-biofortified functional foods from edible plants through Se-enrichment methodologies has been proposed as an alternative solution
Se4All | Selenium biofortified alfalfa for selenium enriched dairy products
Welcome to the Se4All project! We’re at the forefront of enhancing the concentration and bioavailability of Se in milk and dairy products.
Climate change poses a threat to selenium levels in soils, potentially increasing the risk of selenium deficiency in various parts of the globe. Our vision tackles this challenge head-on. We aim to combat health issues arising from Se-deficient diets by producing Se-enriched dairy products. How? By introducing Se-biofortified hay as a natural nutrient source into the diets of milking cows.
