Prevention of folate deficiency by food fortification. VII. The use of bread as a vehicle for folate supplementation.


Bread fortified to contain a daily dose of 900 mug folic acid was administered to patients in late pregnancy. The patients receiving the bread showed significant rise in red cell folate concentration. The rise was similar to that observed in women receiving a daily dose of 300 mug of folic acid in tablet form. It is concluded that bread may be used as a vehicle for folic acid fortification.
