A method was developed allowing the separation, detection and identification of Se species extracted from yeast supplements during simulated digestion processes. The in vitro gastric and intestinal digests were studied for their Se compounds by successive high-performance liquid chromatography–inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (HPLC-ICP-MS) and high-performance liquid chromatography–electrospray tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC-ES-MS-MS) analyses. The conditions for the separation were chosen as to be compatible with both ICP-MS and ES-MS-MS detection. HPLC-ICP-MS was used to screen the extracts for their Se content. By means of HPLC-ES-MS-MS, the compounds extracted were identified on-line according to their retention time, m/z of the molecular ion and the presence of typical product ions. From these results, it was clear that the main compound extracted by both gastric and intestinal fluid was Se-methionine, which was also the main Se compound extracted by proteolytic digestion from the yeast supplements. Two other minor compounds could be identified as Se-cystine and Se(O)-methionine, a degradation product of Se-methionine.
