PKU Gel is a supplement by Vitaflo. They come in 24 g sachets. Your dietitian would have advised you how many of these you or your child will need to take a day. Keir needs 3 of these a day. One to be taken with each meal. They come in plain or different flavour packs. Keir likes the Raspberry flavour ones.
In my ‘PKU useful information’ folder which I collected over two years, I found some instructions on how to prepare and store the gel. I found this very useful at the beginning but thankfully I know it by heart now. I thought some of you might find this useful.
