    Folic acid is found in fruits and vegetables especially dark green such as spinach and collard greens. And these are usually cooked vegetables.

    this is the "gray area"... lettuce is really not classified as a dark green vegetable; and there is spinach (spinach salad).. from what I understand from reading, in classes... folic acid is found more in cooked vegetables and fruits...

    hey...

    Technically ... by saying that there is a decrease in green leafs does not mean that they are totally deficient of Folate --because you still have folate intake but at a decrease amount compared to normal.

    Overcooked food = destruction of proteins/peptides ...etc...

    Compared the two answers-- Overcooked food is the answer -- because there is no folate for intake because it is already been destroyed by the heat.

    This question probably will not be ask on the board -- it is too vague -- and unfairly asked.

    Folate storage in the body = 3 months -- if you DO NOT eat any green leafs w/i the three months -- you should be showing some signs and symptoms of Megaloblastic anemia.

    Being human ....we adapt well ..if something taste bad .. you wouldn't want to eat it again... no one in their right mind will munch on overcooked food for 3 months ....I think it's a retarded question!
