Selenium & Irish Diets

Keogh's are delighted to introduce the Selena potato to Ireland. Selenium plays a key role in our bodies antioxidant defence systems and immune function and studies have shown that it may help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and certain types of cancers. The most recent estimates of Selenium intakes in Irish adults* has shown that almost half of Irish women (46%) and almost 1 in 5 men (17%) have inadequate Selenium intakes.

The recommended daily intake of Selenium is 50-70 µg for adults and 20-30 µg for children. Selenium deficiency results in an increased susceptibility to develop illnesses. Deficiency can result in poor heart function and a weakened immune system.
