Hi Loren1 I think it depends on how you’re affected with PKU, CPKU or hyperphe – I have CPKU and used to be allowed 500 mg a day. A friend of mine who’s hyperphe can eat around 1500 mg. But now I take the pheBLOCK pills and an allowed 1200 mg and 25g protein. But only one who can the make determination is the metabolic doc/nurse.
