It was good to re-read the phe amounts and to get a better impression of how much phe is actually in certain vegetables. What are your favourite low protein veggies? Do you eat a lot of veggies within your daily diet?

    Can you please do this with fruits!!!! Thank you!

    • pkugirl says:

      yes sure, I will put together a list, this will be a looooong one since most of the fruits are very low in protein. I’ll try to post this over the weekend or on Monday ūüôā

    This is great for the States and very interesting for me to read. We don’t count foods the same in Ireland and our exchanges are 50mg if phe. We have most veg free apart from beans and pulses and certain veg is limited to one serving a day but that’s it. I find it easier over here from what I have read on FB as here one exchange = 1 g of protein so Reading food labels is so easy !

    • pkugirl says:

      Hey, thanks for your feedback. I will add exchanges shortly ūüôā

      We do have a way to calculate the phe-amount when knowing the protein amount in grams.
      fruits:
      Protein in grams x 30 = Phe amount in mg

      vegetables:
      Protein in grams x 40 = Phe amount in mg

      Other foods:
      Protein in grams x 50 = Phe amount in mg

      ūüôā

    I don’t have any of the books or anything due to financial issues so THANK YOU for posting this!! I have such trouble researching how much Phe. is in everything. This was a great help!

    • pkugirl says:

      Hey Lindsey,

      I’m glad to hear you find this helpful. Do you know, that you can easily calculate the amount of phe in food when you have a protein indication in gramm?

      f. e. if you find a processed food with 4 g protein / 100 g:

      4 (g protein) x 50 = 200 mg Phe

      If it is vegetable, no other contents, then multiply by 40, for fruits multiply by 30. ūüôā

      Love,
