I get what you mean now. I was thinking like Amanda was, that you were allowed 45g of protein from food (which I was going to say is alot), but your getting 500 mg of phe (or about 10g of protein).
Your doctor probably means 45 g of protein from formula. Your getting the strawberry Phenylade right? I’m drinking the chocolate Phenylade and nutrition wise it’s the same as the strawberry. 40g of the Phenylade weighed out (or one of the scoops that come in can) is equal to 10g of protein.
