Summary of evidence and Expert Committee recommendations
The folic acid content of the ferrous salt + folic acid combination tablets was increased from 250 µg to 400 µg since evidence has shown that the 400 µg preparation was more effective in meeting the folate requirements of women of childbearing age, thereby reducing the incidence of neural tube defects.
