I am trying to compile a listing of foods found in our local grocery stores across Canada. Please help others by sharing your specials finds! You can email me at email@example.com with products to be added to the list
Chapman's Ice Cream
Although this product can be found at other locations, I find Giant Tiger to be the cheapest and offer the best selction! Majority of the flavours are only 0.33 mg PHE/gm, a full listing can be found in the Low Protein Food List by Virginia Schuett
These items occassionally pop up at various locations. Please let me know where you have seen this product, products you buy & PHE values.
Glutino Pretzels - 20 sticks = 15 mg PHE
The following is a listing of PHE that was provided as an estimate based on the protein content. Please verify with your own clinic.
Okanagan's Choice Cheese Slices - 16 slices 29mg PHE/slice
These can be found in the cheese slice section of many Sobeys stores for around $4.79, but unfortunately not all locations. I have seen the same company cheese blocks in the deli section, but these are NOT low in PHE.
Tastee Apple Chips - Assorted varieties 18 mg PHE/ 90gm bag
I see these in the produce section of Sobey's stores, usually in a basket at the end of a produce rack.
Good Karma Organic Rice Divine - Pints, per 1/2 cup serving
Good Karma Organic Rice Divine - Chocolate Covered Bars
No Name brand Lemon Pudding - 4 individual cups per package 6 mg PHE/serving
Price always seems to vary on these, but they are always cheap! Great for school lunches and snacks.
Cassava (Yucca) Chips
A PHE listing for their So Delicious and Purley Decadent coconut milk products has been provided by the company here (Excel)
The copmpany has recently changed the recipe for their Wheat & Gluten Free products, increasing the protein content to 4gm/protein per serving. Because of this, these waffles are no more PKU friendly than Eggo brand waffles.
Queen Anne Cordial Cherries - These come out every Christmas season so keep your eyes open for a PKU'er treat! For a box of 10, they are approx. $2
Enjoy Life Snack Bars - not very low in PHE, but lower than some other products
Rich's Coffee Rich - finally located this product at local Supercenter in 1L carton for $1.73
Glutino Products - see partial PHE listing under "Glutino" above
Tastee Apple Chips
I have done my best to confirm the accuracy of PHE content for the items listed. Some products are already listed in the "Low Protein Food List for PKU" by Virginia Schuett, others I have had to hunt down either through the listserv archives or provider has supplied values they use.
If in doubt, please check with your clinic. Virginia is working on obtaining the values of Glutino & Kinnikinnick products.
