What are PKU protein supplements?

Protein is an essential nutrient for our bodies. Made up of amino acids, protein is an energy source that exists in every cell of our body and is crucial for growth and development. People who are on a low protein diet to manage their metabolic condition still require protein intake. However, the protein source must be relevant to their metabolic condition, by excluding the offending amino acid. These metabolic conditions may include Phenylketonuria (PKU), Maple Syrup Urine Disease (MSUD), Homocystinuria (HCU) and more. That’s where protein supplements come in. These contain a balanced mix of essential and non-essential amino acids, carbohydrates, fat, and other vitamins and minerals vital for optimal health of those with metabolic disorders.

Who needs to take PKU protein supplements?

Protein supplements provide people with nutrients needed to fill the gap created by their medically prescribed low protein diet. They are fundamental to the proper functioning of the body and are especially important for children and adolescents who are still developing. Supplementing adds safe amounts of protein that otherwise couldn’t be obtained from food. This is essential for people with specific health conditions that need to meet their daily nutrition needs.
