Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND: Bread is an important folate source in several countries. However, bread-making was reported to cause losses of endogenous bread folates (approximately 40%) as well as added synthetic folic acid (approximately 30%). Furthermore, the bread matrix is suggested to inhibit absorption of folates.

PURPOSE: To (1) estimate retention of both, endogenous folates and synthetic fortificants, during bread-making, (2) assess in vitro folate bioaccessibility from breads and a breakfast meal and (3) assess in vitro folate uptake.

METHODS: Retention of folate forms was assessed by preparing fortified (folic acid and [6S]-5-CH(3)-H(4)folate) wholemeal breads and collect samples from dough, proofed dough and the bread. In vitro folate bioaccessibility was assessed using the TNO gastrointestinal model TIM. In vitro folate uptake was assessed using a novel Caco-2 cell/stable isotope model. Folate content in samples was measured using LCMS.

RESULTS: Bread-making resulted in losses of 41% for endogenous folates and up to 25 and 65% for folic acid and [6S]-5-CH(3)-H(4)folate fortificant, respectively. 75% of endogenous bread folates and 94% of breakfast folates were bioaccessible as assessed by TIM. From [6S]-5-CH(3)-H(4)folate-fortified bread, relative folate uptake into Caco-2 cells was 71 +/- 11% (P < 0.05) when compared with a standard solution.

CONCLUSION: Retention of folic acid fortificant during bread-making was substantially higher compared to retention of [6S]-5-CH(3)-H(4)folate fortificant. Data from the TIM and Caco-2 cell trials suggest an inhibiting effect of the tested bread matrices on in vitro bioaccessibility of folates, whereas folate bioaccessibility from a breakfast meal is almost complete.
