Resumen : Currently, data concerning the amount of naturally occurring dietary folate in ready-to-eat foods is scarce, in spite of an increasing consumption. Total folate (TF) in 35 chilled ready-to-eat vegetable-based meals, expected to be good natural folate sources, was determined. A validated method that relies on a trienzyme extraction (αamylase, rat plasma conjugase as a substitute to chicken pancreas conjugase, and protease enzymes), and chloramphenicol-resistant Lactobacillus casei subspecies rhamnosus folate dependent growth was developed. No previous reports on folate data in refrigerated ready-to-eat foods from the Spanish market have been published. Vegetable burgers, containing pulses and green leafy vegetables, had the highest folate content (103.8 μg TF/ 100 g fresh weight). Refrigerated recipes including chickpeas, peas, broccoli, or artichokes had an average folate content of 75 μg TF/100 g fresh weight. A typical serving of targeted ready-to-eat meals (175 g) may provide up to 60% of the Dietary Reference Intake for an adult. No differences in TF were found after mild heat treatment, as recommended by the manufacturer before its consumption. Therefore, these products may be used to increase folate intake by choosing naturally rich dietary sources. Data will assist dietary studies in the assessment of population folate dietary intakes.
