400 Mcg of folic acid Is Equal To How Many Iu Of Folic Acid
10 Replies RSS
is 400 iu of folic acid equal to 400 mcgs of folic acid?Thanks ## Years ago a dr told me to start taking 400 ui of folic acid. Now i find folic acid is labeled as 400 msg not 400 ui.Is 400 msg equal to 400 ui?ThanksF ## Generally speaking, you can't convert between IU and MCG. IU's measure the potency of a drug, not its mass or weight. You can only measure between MG and MCG. 1000 micrograms (mcg) = 1 milligram (mg); so 400 mcg will be equal to just 4 mg Folic acid 400 mcg does equal 100 percent daily value for this nutrient. NOTE: If you can determine what percent daily value 400 iu of folic acid is, then you can essentially compare mcg vs iu. Hope this helps! ## Thanks, that is the conversion I was looking for! ## I have a question as well what is the percentage of folic acid ...
