Difference between folate and folic acid

What is the difference between folate and folic acid?.

R/ Folate occurs naturally in food, and folic acid is the synthetic form of this vitamin. We use folic acid in our supplements as this synthetic form, achieved through fermentation, is more bio available than the natural form. For example, folic acid is highly absorbed (85-95%) compared to the dietary form (50%). The folate (natural form) is easily damaged by cooking and processing, hence why folic acid is considered to be more beneficial for health.
