    Anyone know the phe content in veggie maki/sushi rolls? I've heard two different things…that the seawood used for the wrap has no protein…I've also heard it's full of protein. Which is true? I was wondering if this was an acceptable food? Because otherwise it's seems like just little bits of rice with cucumbers or avocado.

    i think i found an answer to this one–the veggie rolls are ok. just have to calculate the approx amt of rice & whatever veggies are in it. and watch out for sesame seeds. if anyone has any different info feel free to correct this.

    According to the food list, nori sushi sheets are quite low — .36 mg/gm.  A dried sheet listed in the book as 3 gm of weight is 1 mg.

    How about Stevia extract? Does anyone know if this is an acceptable dietary substitute for sugar for us?

    phe is the shortened form of phenylalanine. It's what people with PKU can't metabolize, therefore we count the amount of phe in foods.

    for example, I'm allowed 300mg of phe per day.

    I did a report for my English 101 class on artificial sweeteners recently, and their effects on people with PKU. According to my research, Stevia poses no threat to phenylketonurics. I haven't tried anything stevia-sweetened yet for myself, though. It's natural, so it doesn't contain aspartame or Nutra-Sweet, and it's not made from chemicals like Splenda. I hope this helps!
