You do not mention genetically modified organisms (GMOs)! What is the situation exactly?

This is true, simply because our products contain no GMOs.


What proof do you have that there are no GMOs in your products?

Taranis relies on the traceability of its raw materials and on the GMO certificate of each ingredient, to guarantee that its products do not contain GMOs.


What is a low protein product?

From a regulary point of view, the term low protein product means that the product does not exceed 10% of that a corresponding normal food. ( Example : The Dalia, milk substitute has 0,2g protein per 100ml while the normal milk has 3g per 100ml thus the regulation is respected well).


Are metabolic diseases inherited ?

Yes, the disease is passed on to the child if both the father and mother pass on the gene responsible for the disease.


My son can only eat low protein foods and amino acid mixes. How can I vary his diet?
