yeah, probably just dumbing it down

Let me clear something up. Folate is naturally occurring. Folic acid is a synthesized version of folate. They are absorbed differently by the body, and not exactly the same thing. So when I see a package of spinach that says it's high in folic acid, it confuses me. Do they add folic acid to the spinach, which already contains a high concentration of folate? Or are they just dumbing it down?
