Overview

Glycomacropeptide is a type of protein. It is formed during the process of making cheese. Unlike many other proteins, glycomacropeptide contains only very small amounts of the amino acidphenylalanine.

People take glycomacropeptide for an inherited disorder that increases levels of phenylalanine in the blood (phenylketonuria or PKU), gout, obesity, and many other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.

How does it work ?

Glycomacropeptide contains very low levels of phenylalanine, which might make it a better protein source for people with phenylketonuria.
