In recent years, folates have come into focus due to their protective role against child birth defects, for example, neural tube defects. In addition, folates may have a protective role to play against coronary heart disease and certain forms of cancer. During the last few years most countries have established increased recommended intakes of folates, for(More)
The main objective of this study was to investigate the effects of pasteurisation, UHT processing and fermentation on the concentration of folate-binding proteins (FBP) and their folate binding capacity in comparison with the retention of the most predominant folate from, 5-CH3THF. The amount of folate-binding protein (FBP) was analysed using enzyme-linked(More)
Recent findings suggest a protective role for folates in the reduction of neural tube defects and possibly also coronary heart disease and cancer. Consequently, an increase in the daily intake of folates is warranted, which emphasizes the need for quantitative as well as qualitative measurements of dietary folates.
