    Does anybody know where I can find the Phe content in Welch’s fruit snacks (or other similar products)? I Can’t find much in the book that I recognize except for the gerber fruit snacks, which are fine, just more expensive. Thanks!

    I do not know how much phe there is but there is one gram of protein in 20 pieces and one gram of protein is 45 phes. I am sorry I couldn’t help more, but that is the information I have on hand. I hope I could help.

    Hi there,
    I don’t think we are allowed fruit snacks.
    I believe,because of the gellitian.
    It contains too much protein.
    I will research it a bit more,and post what ii find.

    Hi its Tracie again.
    I found out some info that might help you.
    It looks like if it is dehydrated fruit snacks nits okay to eat. nFor example: dried apricots,bananas,rasins etc.
    They taste really good,Just real chewy.

    Tracie,
    Fruit snacks (such as Kelloggs fruit snacks) are ok for us. Some do contain gelatin, but the amount in most fruit snacks is so minimal that it doesn’t matter.
    My ten-year-old sister always takes fruit snacks to school in her lunch. The phe amount depends on the brand, but most aren’t more then 10 mg of phe/pack.
