New Survey Reveals Majority of Women of Child-Bearing Age Unaware Folic Acid Should Be Consumed Before Pregnancy
Date:1/6/2009

dbearing age to consume 400 micrograms of folic acid daily beginning before pregnancy and continuing into the early months of pregnancy. Bread, crackers, bagels, pasta, pretzels and tortillas made from fortified, enriched white flour are popular and important sources of folic acid. In fact, enriched grain products have been fortified with twice the amount of folic acid found in whole grain products.

"Enriched grains are an easy, inexpensive and delicious way for women to get essential vitamins such as folic acid," noted Judi Adams, MS, RD and president of the Grain Foods Foundation.

In fact, 2008 marked the ten-year anniversary of folic acid fortification to enriched flour. Since the FDA issued the mandate in 1998, neural tube defects (NTDs), including spina bifida, have declined by 26 percent. To commemorate the ten-year anniversary of folic acid fortification to enriched flour, the Grain Foods Foundation and the March of Dimes developed the Folic Acid for a Healthy Pregnancy seal, making it easier for women to identify enriched grain products that have been fortified with folic acid. An English and Spanish-language version of the Folic Acid for a Healthy Pregnancy seal currently appear nationwide on package of select enriched grain products.
