Selenium concentration was measured in the breast milk of 30 mothers at different stages of lactation and various body mass indices (BMI). For a maternal mean selenium intake meeting 100% of the Recommended Daily Allowance, mean milk selenium concentration was 14.06 ng/mL (range: 10.0–24.7 ng/mL). No significant correlation was found between the concentration of milk selenium with the stage of lactation, BMI, or dietary selenium intake.
