Milupa PKU 2 Activa Tomato formula

Hi there,

you know, since I am on holiday at the moment, you will receive postings which have been written before my holiday.

Actually I am enjoying the lunch break and since I prepared the Milupa PKU 2 Active Tomato formula, I decided to let you know about my experience with it.

You solve the formula with warm water (not boiling water, to make sure the amino acids and vitamins come in their best condition) and have a good whirl and then you can drink it along with your lunch (or supper). It tastes like tomatoe soup.

To be honest, I requested the sample with 12g protein (instead of 21g, which would be better to fill the daily amount) because I find it a bit disgusting to imagine amino acids with tomato soup 😀

But – it tastes surprisingly well. Really. You still have a little amino-acid-taste, but it’s not bad at all. It’s also enriched with fat so in case you forgot your lunch, you can easily replace it with this soup plus you can be sure that your body takes in all vitamins properly, which is not the case if you’re eating only an apple with your formula.

Here you find a few indications (per sachet) on  the content of the formula:

calories: 196 kcal

Amino-acids in gramm:

Arginin 0,83

Cystin 0,38

Histidin 0,38

Istoleucin 0,95

Leucin 1,57

Lysin 1,12

Methionin 0,38

Phenylalanine 0,009

Threonin 0,76

Tryptophan 0,28

Tyrosin 0,94

Valin

Alanin

Asparagin-acid 1,8

Glycin 1,32

Prolin 1,8

Serin 1,24

Carnitin 34 mg

carbohydrates  26

Fat 4

I think those are the most important indications. Please let me know whether you want to know anything else. And please let me know if I made mistakes with the names of the amino acids… I just took the German word for them since I don’t know the English ones – but I am willing to learn 😀

Please also keep in mind, that this formula type is created for children (I haven’t ordered the type for grown ups with 21g protein, which would of course have other quantities as well), so you should take a formula especially adjusted for the needs of grown ups to make sure you got the right quantities.

Hope this was interesting for you. I think I won’t take this one regularly. Though the taste is good, it’s a huge effort to make me drink it, since “it’s formula” and “not soup” – can you understand this?

PS: Is Milupa Metabolics formula also available in your country?

Testing Kit- Milupa Formula

Hi everyone,

a few days ago I received the Milupa-testing kit for formula – they have different “shakes” with different amounts of protein. I prepared the strawberry formula with 14g protein as breakfast today (it’s enriched with fat acids, so I guess it’s no problem to have not a breakfast together with it)

Here’s a pic of the prepared shake. It tastes really good… I like it and since it’s only 14 g protein per shake, its taste is not so strong (normally you can taste this strong aftertaste, typically for amino acids I think 🙂

I guess the flavors / formulas aren’t new at all, but Milupa is promoting a new composition without artificial flavors, colouring supplements or artifical sweetners. Which is really a good thing – since you’re likely to consum this on a daily base. 🙂

I also ordered samples of the chocolate flavour with 14g protein, mokka with 21g protein, cacao with 21g protein, pink orange with 21g protein and a tomatoe soup formula with 14g protein, which can be drunk for lunch f. e.

I’m really excited about the last one, since I think this is a fantastic and unique idea, taking your formula directly together with lunch or supper.

In my opinion, Milupa made a great effort providing this great variety of samples for testing, they also provide leaflets with exact formula description and had a nice box (matching the theme -where everything was packed into). Even they promise a gift card for an internet shop when you’re giving feedback by mail how you liked the samples.

Of course I will keep you updated with the other testings 🙂 I will show you pics, too. Nevertheless, I think that the products are not available outside of Germany yet – but if there’s an interest in those formulas from your side I will be pleased to ask Milupa whether there’s a possibility to obtain those (samples as well as full size products) from abroad.

Are you also interested in the exact composition of the shake? I could release this here too if you want to, but I’m not quite sure whether you want to read this.

Love,
