#FindFolicAcid Danville, Virginia
We went to two stores in Danville, Virginia, to see if their corn masa flour and corn tortillas contained folic acid.

This form of vitamin B9 is essential for preventing birth defects of the brain and spine. Hispanic women in the US have a 21% higher chance of having a baby with a brain or spine birth defect than non-Hispanics.

What we found was similar to what researchers found in Atlanta - very little corn masa flour is fortified and corn tortillas are not made with fortified corn masa flour.
