Folic Acid or Folate

Hello Everyone!

I am about 5 - 6 weeks pregnant.  I found out on Veteran's Day.  Upon learning that I was pregnant, I switched prenatal vitamins. I had been taking Vitafusion Prenatal for a while. It contained folic acid.  I was told that New Chapter Perfect Prenatal multivitamin was a better choice since the tablets are derived from organic vegetables and herbs.  To my surprise, the ingredient list on Perfect Prenatal did not include folic acid. It has folate which makes up part of the folic acid supplement.  I would like to know which is actually better for me and my baby folic acid or folate?

Thank you
