Additional Information

Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid derived from animal and vegetable proteins and deficiencies are very rare. However, in some rare cases, an inborn error in metabolism known as Phenylketonuria (PKU) can cause Phenylalanine to build up in the blood, resulting in a lifelong diet that is low in Phenylalanine.
