Aptamil® Feed Thickener is a tasteless and odourless thickening agent which may be mixed with breast milk or infant formula to assist in the management of problematic regurgitation. Aptamil® Feed Thickener maintains thickness of feed through the stomach due to the presence of carob bean gum which resists digestion in the mouth. This helps reduce regurgitation frequency in infants.1
