The levels of folic acid and zinc in breast milk of about 25 women in their first trimester of lactation from each of eight towns in the Brazilian Amazon basin were determined. In order to compare the effects of age and parity on the breast milk folate and zinc levels, the results were analysed together. Thirty-one (60 per cent) of the women in their first month of lactation and 35 (51.5 per cent) in their second month had milk total folate levels below the calculated lower limit of adequacy… CONTINUE READING

While the mean breast milk folate levels ( both total and free ) showed no significant changes during the months of lactation , the average milk zinc levels showed a significant decrease between the first and second and first and third months of lactation .
Thirty - one ( 60 per cent ) of the women in their first month of lactation and 35 ( 51.5 per cent ) in their second month had milk total folate levels below the calculated lower limit of adequacy ; only 21 ( 47 per cent ) of the women in their third month of lactation had milk total folate concentrations below the same limit .
