TYR Protein Formula
Low Protein Foods
Tylactin was the world’s first TYR protein formula that is made from a natural whole protein derived from whey called glycomacropeptide (GMP). GMP is the only naturally occurring protein that does not contain Phe or Tyr in its pure form. The natural absence of Phe and Tyr in this unique protein makes it ideal for the TYR diet. Tylactin is a modified formulation of GMP plus specific amino acids but is not supplemented with tyrosine to make it appropriate for the dietary treatment of Tyrosinemia Type I, II, III.
Studies have shown that natural intact proteins, like GMP, have a slower absorption rate in the body and an improved protein usage when compared with single amino acids, which mimic whole intact protein. Available in three difference preparations:
