Sophie’s Kitchen Vegan Smoked Salmon and Sophie’s Kitchen Vegan Shrimp
Sophie’s Kitchen now has Smoked Salmon and Prawns available widely through Sainsburys in the UK for £4.50 per box and these are PKU exchange free – they are based on the konjac powder, known to be low in phenylalanine and the protein content itself is very low (0.3g protein/100g and 0.4g protein/100g for the prawns and smoked salmon respectively). The prawns have had some reasonable reviews on social media from people with PKU – thank you to those who posted. Sadly these are only in Sainsbury’s, (although small independent retailers may also have them).
Vegi Rice – Sweet Potato Rice on sale at Sainsbury’s Morrisons, Asda and Waitrose. Exchange free, 200g pack takes 2 and a half minutes in the microwave to heat up (or you can heat it on stovetop). Costs £1.992-£2.09
Low Protein Cheese
A downloadable guide to low protein cheeses is now on our website and this has been compiled and kindly shared by metabolic dietitians at Birmingham Children’s Hospital – it is extremely informative.
