Abstract Background: Selenium(Se) is an element found in the soil, which is also an essential micronutrient for human body. In fact, Se content of most of foods is very low, the Se requirement of the body can be satisfied with dietary supplements, Se-enriched foods is a good choice to deliver Se. Scope and approach: In modern society, the suitable agronomic-based and processing-based strategies can be utilized by farmers and producers to produce Se-enriched food products with high quality. We can also use some methods to optimize the Se content and bioaccessibility of Se-enriched foods. Key findings and conclusions: Agricultural stragety biofortification is an efficient way to produce Se-enriched local original products. But some processing methods may decrease the Se content of processed food. In addition, different Se forms have different bioaccessibility to living organisms.
