Glycomacropeptide (GMP) is a protein naturally low in phenylalanine. Protein substitutes based on GMP are regularly perceived to be more palatable than those based on amino acids1,2
. Palatability of protein substitutes is key to compliance,3
making GMP an ideal alternative protein source for Phenylketonuria (PKU).
