What is Gelmix?
Gelmix is the first USDA organic thickener for breast milk and formula specifically formulated for pediatric use in America. Consisting of an off-white fine powder, Gelmix is tasteless, odorless and smooth when dissolved. Gelmix utilizes carob bean gum, an ingredient used for decades to thicken infant milk in Europe and a healthier alternative to thickening with rice cereal.
Why Thicken Liquids?
Thickening liquids is sometimes recommended for infants with spit-up or vomiting, often present in conditions such as gastroesophageal reflux disease. Thickening is also recommended for children and adults with swallowing difficulties, present in conditions such as dysphagia. Always consult a physician before thickening liquids to ensure it is appropriate for your individual needs.
Gelmix is free of common allergens including corn, gluten, wheat, soy, whey, lactose and casein. Gelmix is also fat free and low in calorie. Using considerably less volume to thicken effectively compared to cereals and other commercial thickeners, Gelmix preserves the nutritional balance of the diet that requires thickening.
