Cambrooke Therapeutics announced the launch of Glytactin RESTORE Powder and Glytactin RESTORE Lite Powder, new medical food hydration beverages for the dietary management of phenylketonuria (PKU).
Glytactin is produced from a natural whole protein derived from whey called glycomacropeptide (GMP). Clinical evidence suggests that intact proteins made with GMP provide important benefits for patients with PKU vs. traditional synthetic amino acid based formulas. Some benefits include improved taste, increased satiety, lower dietary acid load, and improved protein utilization. Also, a recent study found that overall patient acceptance of medical food with glytactin products was statistically higher than traditional synthetic amino acid based formulas.
Glytactin RESTORE Powder contains 5g protein equivalents (PE) where as the RESTORE Lite Powder contains 10g PE with 55% fewer calories than Glytactin RESTORE Powder per gram of PE. The formulation contains B vitamins and electrolytes, which help replenish electrolytes lost during activities.
Both Glytactin RESTORE and RESTORE Lite Powder products are supplied in portable, single-serve, stick-packs. Glytactin RESTORE Powder is available as berry and orange flavors. The Glytactin RESTORE Lite Powder is available as an orange flavor.
