|Protein Equivalent (% calories)†||22|
|Fat (% calories)||19|
|Carbohydrate (% calories)||59|
Fat provides 19% of total calories in Phenyl-Free® 2. The fat source is soy oil. Soy oil is a source of the essential omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids: linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid.
Protein equivalents provide 22% of total calories in Phenyl-Free 2. The product provides the essential amino acids (except phenylalanine) as well as nonessential amino acids (see Amino Acids table). Care must be taken to provide enough phenylalanine from other foods to support growth and tissue maintenance. The higher protein equivalent concentration in Phenyl-Free 2 helps children and adults with PKU meet their protein needs while consuming fewer calories from the product. This, in turn, allows Phenyl-Free 2 users to consume a greater variety of foods in order to meet their phenylalanine and calorie needs.
|Essential Amino Acids||Per 100 g Powder|
|Nonessential Amino Acids|
|Aspartic acid, mg||1740|
|Glutamic acid, mg||3500‡|
Carbohydrate provides 59% of total calories in Phenyl-Free 2. The carbohydrate blend is 50% sucrose (table sugar), 43% corn syrup solids, and 7% modified corn starch. The sucrose in the product helps mask the taste of amino acids. Phenyl-Free 2 is lactose-free.
