Published 2006 .
Written in English.

About the Book

The purpose of this study was to compare the folate intake of a sample of pregnant and lactating women after folic acid fortification, to the Estimated Average Requirement (EAR) and the Tolerable Upper Level (UL). Weighed food records were collected over 3 days from university educated women (32 +/- 4 yr) at 36 weeks of pregnancy (n=61) and 4 and 16 weeks postpartum (n=60). Nutrient intakes were estimated using the Canadian Nutrient File. Mean dietary folate equivalent (DFE) intake in pregnancy and lactation were 562 +/- 106 ug/d and 498 +/- 99 ug/d DFE respectively. Based on the EAR, the respective prevalence of folate inadequacy were 36% and 32%. Most women (97%) consumed a folic acid tablet supplement during pregnancy (925 +/- 238 ug/d) above and beyond this. In conclusion, despite folic acid food fortification, many pregnant and lactating women do not meet their folate requirements from the diet alone.
