Fat provides 15% of total calories in Phenyl-Free® 2 HP. The fat source is soy oil. Soy oil is a source of the essential omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids: linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid.
Protein equivalents provide 41% of total calories in Phenyl-Free 2 HP. The product provides the essential amino acids (except phenylalanine) as well as nonessential amino acids (see Amino Acids table). Care must be taken to provide enough phenylalanine from other foods to support growth and tissue maintenance. The level of protein equivalents in Phenyl-Free 2 HP is almost 2 times higher than those found in Phenyl-Free 2. The higher protein equivalent concentration in Phenyl-Free 2 HP helps children and adults with PKU meet their protein needs while consuming fewer calories from the product. This, in turn, allows Phenyl-Free 2 HP users to consume a greater variety of foods in order to meet their phenylalanine and calorie needs. The product is appropriate for women with maternal PKU and children and adults who require fewer calories than provided by Phenyl-Free 2.

Carbohydrate provides 44% of total calories in Phenyl-Free 2 HP. The carbohydrate blend is sucrose (table sugar), corn syrup solids, carbohydrate from the amino acid premix and modified corn starch. The sucrose in the product helps mask the taste of the amino acids. Phenyl-Free 2 HP is suitable for someone with lactose intolerance.
