    Food Items Include:


    Brussels sprouts



    Egg yolk

    Kidney beans



    Fresh fruits, especially papaya and kiwi

    You have prepared there a quite informative post about folic acid. I couldn't even guess that there is much of this vitamin in beans or cauliflower. I guess that is the best topic to write my discussion for my dissertation about. Thanks!
