PhenylAde and PhenylAde 60 are medical, nutritional supplements for those who suffer from Phenylketonuria (PKU). PKU is a rare, genetic disorder caused by a defect in the gene that helps create the amino acid phenylalanine hydroxylase. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Individuals without the necessary enzyme to process phenylalanine cannot eat foods that are high in protein. If they do, a dangerous buildup of phenylalanine can develop that results in serious health problems.
People with PKU need to follow a special, restricted diet that limits phenylalanine, which is found mostly in foods that contain protein.
Because their diet is limited, people with PKU need to get essential nutrition through a phenylalanine-free formula.

PhenylAde 60 Drink Mix
PhenylAde 60 Drink Mix is a phenylalanine-free, powdered medical food for the dietary management of PKU in children, adults, pregnant women, and women of childbearing age. This drink mix provides 60 grams of protein equivalent per 100 grams of powder. It can be mixed with just three ounces of water as opposed to PhenylAde Essential Drink Mix which requires seven ounces of water. Additionally, it has only 49 calories per serving. It is only available in vanilla and unflavored. Therefore, the differences are the amount of protein provided, calories per serving, the flavors available, and the amount of water required.
Medical Supervision Is Required
Due to the nature of PKU and the severity of health issues that may occur with too much protein intake, these products must be used under medical supervision by a physician or registered dietician.
