Common yeast

Vegetarians may receive a lack of selenium. Because if, for example, rye bread contains 3 times more selenium than white, and air rice gives us too much of it, vegetables, especially grown on the soil, poor selenium, cannot be considered a good source of this trace element. Very rich they yeast. By the way, it should be noted that the method of determination of selenium is one of the most complex, and because it provided on the packaging data about its content should be treated with caution.
Yeast, especially beer, is considered the best source of selenium, not only because they have much of it, but because it is easily digestible and biologically active form. Already in 1950, it was found that yeast contains a mysterious "element 3", warning some diseases rats (in particular, necrosis of the liver). Tried all sorts of known means of food, warning necrosis of the liver, but after 22 days he was still developing. And yeast is added to feed, even in small amounts, completely stopped the process. "Element-3" was selenium. Useful and common Baker's yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae). But not every species of yeast contains selenium.

As is the yeast?

According to nutritionists, healthy person is enough 2 g of yeast per day. But beer and Baker's yeast is not always good for the body because they contain too much of nucleic acids (about 14-15%). However, these acids are water-soluble and they can "wash" from yeast, but there is a danger "with a font to throw out the child", i.e. to deprive yeast selenium and very valuable vitamins, well soluble in water.
In addition, until the yeast is not digested by the body, they continue to live in the digestive system, and hence to eat. What? Just b vitamins, mainly Biotin or vitamin H. Biotin is one of the factors providing immunity, protects us from tuberculosis. It especially many in the silo, and this explains the fact that in cows eating grass silage is not so common TB. So the yeast need to "kill" before you eat. They perish at the temperature of 60 C, it is enough to fill them with boiling water. Best yeast-without sugar, as sweet environment selenium dies. Pour possible not only by water, but by boiling milk.
There is another way of making quite tasty dishes from yeast.
Terrine of yeast. I must admit that this dish is so specific taste that his or love, or feel for him disgust. Finely chop onion and put it out under cover with 1 tablespoon of sunflower oil, and 2 tablespoons water. Once the onion is soft and translucent, add 30-50 g of baking yeast and stir until they are dismissed, or rather, not rasplyvetsya. But - God forbid! - not to overheat: the smell of burnt yeast unbearable. Immediately to drive two proteins and stir until all thickens. Remove from heat. Season to taste with salt and pepper, add a little flavor of butter. Densely sprinkle finely chopped parsley and serve hot with bread or potatoes.
This "feast", it is useful to arrange when our dietary few products that contain selenium. 2-3 times a week is sufficient, since a large portion. But after an illness, when you want to remove from the body, toxic substances, not hurt, and more. This is good to add germinated grain wheat (vitamin E). And selenium, and vitamin E prevents the liver disease.
