What is GMP?
Glycomacropeptide (GMP) is a protein naturally low in phenylalanine and tyrosine. Protein substitutes based on GMP are regularly perceived to be more palatable than those based on amino acids1,2. Palatability of protein substitutes is key to dietary compliance3, and so this, combined with its’ low tyrosine content means GMP is an ideal alternative protein source for Tyrosinaemia.
