“A useful and extensive set of ideas for use by professionals, which may be adapted for their own patients, to provide more variety in a specialized diet.”—Journal of Inherited Metabolic Disease
“The author is well aware of the difficulties and time necessary for preparation of a special diet. Most of the recipes are simple and easy to prepare. . . . The chapter on ‘Everyday Tips’ is enormously helpful in storing and freezing, planning meals, and generally assisting the cook to manage a special diet.”—Academic Library Book Review
From the Back Cover
Much more than a cookbook, Low Protein Cookery for PKU (Phenylketonuria) is a practical and easy-to-use guide for those who must maintain a protein-restricted diet for treatment of PKU or similar inherited diseases of protein metabolism. It contains hundreds of helpful suggestions for managing the diet. This third edition of Low Protein Cookery for PKU appears exactly twenty years alter the original 1977 publication and includes the 450-plus recipes and the hints from the 1988 second edition that have been used and enjoyed by families for nearly a decade. The major new feature of the third edition is entirely new nutrient calculations. The available food supply has changed significantly in the past fifteen years, and nutrient information is much better now. The nutrient calculations in this edition of the cookbook are based on the updated 1995 Low Protein Food List for PKU compiled by the author, which is the most widely used food list for the PKU diet in the United States. Some of the changes in nutrient values are subtle, others more significant; all reflect the best information currently available.

When I flipped through the pages of the book, not only was I excited about the easy recipes using everyday ingredients, but it also gave ideas for resources to learn more about PKU, such as National PKU News. The author did extensive research in her home with each recipe, making it and having others taste them. I am very excited to try the over 400 recipes in this book!
