Ever wish you could just make your own formula using your favorite great tasting drink?
Well, now you can with Nutricia’s Amino Acid Blends.
This type of formula is available for PKU (PhenylAde™ Amino Acid Blend), MSUD (Complex MSD Amino Acid Blend) and GA-1 (GlutarAde™Amino Acid Blend).
It’s simple, this style of medical food is just the amino acid (protein) part of your formula . It is virtually tasteless and ordorless. You simply MIX-IT-IN to the drink of your choice.
Seriously, it is that easy. So, yes wishes can come true!
Love drinking sports drink while you exercise or play soccer?
Why not turn that sports drink into your PKU formula and get some post workout phenyalanine-free (for PKU) protein at the same time.
Mix with lemonade, iced tea, fruit punch, orange drink or anything you think it would taste good with.
There are no rules, expect you want the drink you choose to be protein-free or very, very low in in protein. You can even mix Amino Acid Blend into ready to eat foods like applesauce and tomato sauce.
Lastly, if you or your child love your current formula but have a hard time with that last serving to meet your full daily diet prescription.
Talk to your metabolic healthcare professional about adding a scoop of Amino Acid Blend to increase the medical food protein content without adding volume.
