    Hi Cat,
    It depends on how may grams of protein you nare allowed.
    Say you are allowed 5 grams of protein a day.
    It would be 45 PHE’s per 1 gram of protein.
    Hopefully i was of some help.

    We are allowed 350 phe/day. That would make 7.7 grams of protein. But how are you coming up with the gram? Is this from the nutrition label? I’m not used to measuring this way, but curious why it is done like that.
