The Applied Nutrition PhenylAde MTE Amino Acid Blend is a protein substitute designed for patients with phenylketonuria. It contains a blend of essential and non-essential amino acids with no phenylalanine to fulfill their recommended protein intake. It is a tasteless and an odorless drink mix that can be easily mixed with different foods, beverages, PKU formulas, or low protein foods for an altered taste perception. The drink mix is an oral supplement suitable for children, teens, and adults, including pregnant women.
The Applied Nutrition PhenylAde MTE is primarily formulated to meet recommended protein needs in phenylketonuria patients with undesirably high amounts of phenylalanine. But being a vital part of essential amino acids, phenylalanine is very commonly found in almost all protein rich foods. Therefore, a special formula is required to ensure the patient is not deprived of protein but also not provided with phenylalanines.
The mix serves forty calories in one scoop of nearly thirteen grams, with ten grams of protein. Other than protein, it also includes a blend of calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, chromium, molybdenum, and selenium to provide the recommended amount of minerals. The formula does not include fats or sugars which makes it suitable to be consumed by a wide range of individuals.
It is important to note that this supplement is intended to be consumed by patients above the age of one and with proven phenylketonuria. It is recommended to avoid its consumption as a sole-source-of nutrition or through an IV.
