Pure Encapsulations - Pancreatic Enzyme 60's
What is the difference between Creon and Pure Encapsulations - Pancreatic Enzyme 60's ?
Added 30 Jun 2015:
Creon is expensive and a prescription drug and Pure Encapsulations - Pancreatic Enzyme 60's can be obtained without a prescription and not as expensive.
Here are all the facts I could find:
Pure Encapsulations - Pancreatic Enzyme 60's as reported by people using it: It's lactose free pancreatin from porcine (pig) source 500mg - provides lipase 17,500 USP, protease 110,000 USP, and amylase 120,000 USP. Other ingredients: vegetarian capsule (cellulose, gellan gum, water).
Creon, whose manufacturer won't reveal the exact amounts of the ingredients: active ingredients from porcine source: lipase, protease, amylase. Inactive ingredients: cetyl alcohol, dimethicone, hypromellose, phthalate, polyethylene glycol, and triethyl citrate.

Google "Pure Encapsulations - Pancreatic Enzyme 60's" and select the Amazon dot com choice to see the product and the reviews from people who have taken it. My husband takes Creon (very expensive) and I'm going to tell him about this other product! If it works, we can save a small fortune!
