    I sent an email to the website owners for that product and this is what they said about the PKU software…
    Jennifer:
    We are working with Nutricia (SHS) on a web-based diet management program specifically designed for PKU. I encourage you to contact them directly to enquire about this program. You can visit their website http://www.MySpecialDiet.com.

    If you go to http://www.myspecialdiet.com they do have a program that you can download for free. The only thing is it is supposed to be used with a PDA.
    I tried it out, but I didn’t really like it because it gave you the phe for only certain foods. It also gave you the phe amount for 100g of the food you were looking up, so I would have had to carry a scale around which I don’t do. I’m sure my mom carried a scale when I was little, but for the most part I can make a very good educated guess on my portion sizes.
    But anybody who has a PDA should check it out, just because I wasn’t a huge fan of it doesn’t mean you won’t be!
