Inherited Metabolic Disorders

Our heritage in Metabolic Disorders 

Since the 1960s, we’ve been developing products to support many of our patients across a wide range of inherited metabolic disorders. Our patients have lifelong conditions, and we're proud to be their partner for life. We hold events for patients, their families and carers, where we support them and they can meet and support each other – there’s a real sense of community.  We also provide low protein cookery classes to help families with mealtimes, and to show patients how to make the most of what they can eat as well as providing online resouces to help patients adhere to diet. 

The challenges of living with an inherited metabolic disorder (IMD) cannot be underestimated, but no IMD patient needs to struggle alone. Not when the nutrition specialists at Nutricia Metabolics are right here, ready to provide you and your patients with scientifically robust products and unparalleled support services they need to help them get the most out of life.

Our Metabolic Products

Nutricia has developed a broad range of Inherited Metabolic Disorders (IMDs) products, supporting as many people as possible across the world. We use our unique nutritional expertise to develop high-quality products that help make the lives of patients and their families a little easier. We provide products for patients from birth to adulthood. Nutricia are proud to offer patients choice by providing products in a range of formats and flavours.

Disclaimer: The Anamix, Lophlex, GMPro, Phlexy-10 and Loprofin Range are foods for special medical purposes for the dietary management of inherited metabolic disorders and should only be used under medical supervision. Refer to labels for details.
