Nutricia’s Family of GMP-Based Formulas

What is GMP icon

Glycomacropeptide, or GMP for short, is derived from a whole protein in milk during the cheese making process. It is naturally low in phenylalanine (PHE) and tyrosine (TYR), and with the addition of certain amino acids, it makes a suitable source of protein for those with phenylketonuria (PKU) or tyrosinemia (TYR).

In this blog post, we will tell you about the different GMP-based formula options Nutricia has available. This quick reference guide can be useful when speaking with your metabolic dietitian about which formula is right for you or your child.
