Vitaflo PKU Gel FAQ


What is PKU Gel Protein Powder?

PKU gel is a concentrated, powdered protein substitute that is easily made into a low volume, smooth, semi-solid when mixed with water. One sachet contains the equivalent of 10 grams of protein and all of the vitamins, minerals, and trace elements needed to help meet your child’s requirements. PKU gel can also be made into a low-volume drink if your child prefers to continue with a liquid protein substitute.

How much Vitaflo PKU Gel does child need?

The amount of PKU gel your baby or child needs will depend on various factors, including their age, weight, and PKU control. Initially, they may only need a very small amount which will likely increase. Your dietitian will advise exactly how much PKU gel your child will need each day.

PKU gel is available unflavoured and is suitable from 6 months of age. It is also available in orange and raspberry flavors, ideal from 1 year. PKU gel can also be flavored using Vitaflo’s Flavour Pack sachets, which are blackcurrant, orange, raspberry, and tropical. Some people also use permitted flavorings.
