Phenylketonuria (PKU) is a genetic disorder in which the body can't process part of a protein called phenylalanine (Phe).
PKU diet is one of the strictest diets in the world. Adequate intake of essential vitamins and minerals is very important to maintain health, growth and development. Numerous studies shows potential risk of developing deficiency of essential nutrients including Vitamin B6, B12, Choline, Selenium in people who follow PKU diet.
My PKU Diet tracks phenylalanine, vitamins and minerals and shows deficiency according to Recommended Daily Intakes*, age (infants, children, adults), gender (man, woman) and special nutrition requirements (pregnancy, lactation).
