Food Sources Folate (folic acid): Dark leafy greens, uncooked, are the best source of folate (folic acid). Additionally, the folate (folic acid) will be methylfolate (folic acid) from this source. Kale, collards, and spinach are examples of dark leafy greens to eat. I recommend twice a day, uncooked.
