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.

    Thanku for this brilliant app, it has helped me a lot, any chance we could also select the amount of protein intake?

    Awesome app, great help for everyday life and keeping the diet. Maybe if some products could be added (esp. Low phe products) that would then make it a 5star app for me.
