Anyone know of an online phe counter?

October 1, 2009 in Uncategorized

I was wondering if anyone knew of an online database for looking up the amount of phe in foods. I was thinking if there isn't one there should be. Anyone heard of anything like that?

    Yeah, I think so. a couple of years ago, I was in a nutrition science class and used one. I will look through my class notes ( assuming I still have them ) and see if I can find a reference for it.

    in the mean time, here is a good resource if you have a palm pilot or some device that has Palm OS 5.2.1 or better on it.

    I just had a thought. If you have a current food list and know a little about Excel or speedsheets, you could created your own spreadsheet to calculate nutrient values for your food. I admit, this might sound like a lot of work in the beginning, but in the end, you will have a quick reference that you can play with to calculate the food values for any given measurement of food.

    This is the USDA database. It is hard to search but it has some of the basic foods and their phenylalanine content.

    I am hoping something will come out soon. We have the old PKULife software that is no longer made. We still use it but having something online would be even better! Stephanie
