Bump. I was just wondering as well - I was looking up selenium amounts on various search results, and they seem to grossly vary. Like some websites list 1 serving of pasta have 1/2 the RDA, and other 1/8 the RDA. I am curious of the selenium content in oats. I'd rather not have to buy Brazil nuts because they are super expensive, and they last batch I bought at Trader Schmoe's tasted bitter and had like a darker color in the center. They were a little nasty, I might have to throw them away.

I think the selenium content of land-based plants can vary quite a bit depending on the soil content. I live in a place known to be low in soil selenium. Possibly seafood might provide a more reliable source?

Sounds rancid. Chucking them is probably wise. Fresh enough ones shouldn't taste like that.

Has anyone had success with selenium? Has it helped with anything?
seems to be helping me weight loss. fantastic warm body feeling = higher metabolism/ higher t3.
seems to also be very anti estrogenic
