What is Gelmix?


Gelmix is an organic thickening powder for use with breast milk, formula and other liquids. Gelmix consists of an off-white fine powder that is tasteless, odorless and smooth when dissolved. The natural thickening properties of Gelmix activate in warm liquid, so Gelmix can be used with any liquid that is be warmed first.


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. In all cases, any changes to the diet should always be in consultation with a physician.

Why Gelmix?


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 other commercial thickeners, Gelmix preserves the nutritional balance of the diet that requires thickening.

The Power of Carob Bean Gum


Gelmix harnesses the properties of organic carob bean gum, also known as locust bean gum, a natural food thickener, emulsifier and stabilizer used in a variety of everyday foods, such as cream cheese, ice cream and salad dressing.  It has been used in Europe for decades as a thickener in the preparation of infant formula.


American and European Societies for Pediatric Gastroenterology recognize carob bean gum as a thickening option for breast milk and formula. While Gelmix is the first and only USDA certified organic thickener specifically formulated for pediatric use in America, it can be used to thicken liquids for adults too!



Gelmix consists of three ingredients: Organic Tapioca Maltodextrin, Organic Carob Bean Gum and Calcium Carbonate. For infants and children under 3 years old, Gelmix may be used to achieve up to a light honey-thick consistency. For adults and children over 3 years old, Gelmix may be used to achieve up to a spoon-thick consistency.


Gelmix is not for use with infants under a gestational age of 42 weeks or under six pounds. It is not intended for use with pre-thickened formulas or in addition to other thickening products. Do not use for individuals with suspected galactosemia or allergy to galactomannans. Gelmix is food supplement, not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
