Nature’s healthier thickening option for breast milk and formula
Gelmix, a hypoallergenic, USDA organic thickener for breast milk and infant formula, consists of an off-white fine powder that is tasteless, odorless, and smooth when dissolved. It is the first USDA organic thickener specifically formulated for pediatric use in America.

Always consult a medical professional before thickening liquids to ensure it is appropriate for your infant’s individual needs.
Moderately thick (aka honey) liquids are not recommended for infants and children less than 1 year old. Moderately thick liquids are more difficult to pass through a nipple/teat and may increase risk of dehydration due to poor oral intake.
Gelmix may cause transient gassiness and loose stools in first two weeks. This typically resolves on its own or by decreasing amount used.
Gelmix is not for use with infants under 6 pounds and/or born preterm currently under a corrected age of 2 weeks (42 weeks postmenstrual age). Do not use if galactosemia or allergy to galactomannans is suspected. Stop using if rash or other allergic reaction develops, and consult a physician immediately.
For best results, mix Gelmix powder into lukewarm liquid (about 100ºF) per dosage recommendations. Mix well until powder is completely dissolved. Allow to thicken 5 minutes, then mix again before feeding. Always test temperature before feeding. Discard leftover preparation.
