Is the butter called for in some of your cookie recipes (such as Brooke's Chocolate Chip recipe) real butter? How can this be used in a PKU diet?

Response From Ajinomoto Cambrooke
Hi Louise,

Yes, the recipe calls for real butter. 1 tablespoon of butter has 0.1 grams of protein and 6 mg of phe. If you use imitation margarine, you will have 6 mg of phe per tablespoon. Hope you enjoy the recipe!
