Background: In children with phenylketonuria (PKU), it is possible that high carbohydrate protein substitutes may adversely affect blood phenylalanine control. We evaluated if a low carbohydrate, 'ready-to-drink' protein substitute would impact on short term blood phenylalanine control, weight and appetite in children with PKU aged 3-10 years.
