Transitioning from a phe-free infant formula

At this stage, children are exploring a variety of different tastes and textures. As part of their development, solid foods are gradually replacing fluids to meet increasing nutrition needs. To meet increasing protein needs as age increases, phe-free formula may need to be concentrated to encourage appetite and help with establishing healthy and age-appropriate eating behaviors.
PKU explore10 is a powdered phe-free formula specifically designed to be mixed with a small amount of water to form a spoonable consistency or to be prepared as a low volume drink.
PKU trio is a powdered phe-free formula to support appropriate feeding development from one year of age, through a more concentrated formulation than standard phe-free infant formula.
