Use this app to count, track, chart and control your folate (aka vitamin B9, folic acid) and vitamin B12 intake to avoid deficiency. Deficiency in women before or during pregnancy can cause brain and spinal cord birth defects in their children. Folate and vitamin B12 deficiency are also a cause of anemia. Additional app features include the at-a-glance descending order lists of folate and B12 content of >300 common foods in µg and %RDA (Adult Daily Recommended Dietary Allowance) /100g to help you plan folate- and vitamin B12-containing meals; and really useful hyperlinks to essential nutritional and healthy food information with ≈200 photos to support your weightloss, hearthealth or other diet. No internet connection, registration, personal details or additional payments required.
Folate and vitamin B12 play key roles in DNA (genes) and red blood cell production. B12 deficiency damages the brain and nerves, and folate deficiency damages the skin and linings of the mouth and gut. B12 is not found in plantbased foods so vegans and vegetarians may become deficient if they don't take supplements. Alcoholics are prone to folate deficiency.
Use the count and organiser tools to count, track and keep a daily bar chart record of your folate and vitamin B12 intake in µg and %RDA provided by 250 heart healthy foods, 55 popular "not heart healthy" foods, and foods you choose to add to the counter in the quantities you’ve eaten.
The interface is easy, quick, and intuitive to navigate, colour-coded, searchable, and zoomable using the pinch screen function. Viewable in landscape and portrait.
