Ingredients

Maltodextrin, locust bean gum, calcium carbonate, ferrous sulphate, zinc sulphate.

Usage

Instant Carobel may be added directly to an infant’s milk or drink (water/juice), or given by spoon as a thick gel just prior to drinking, or eating a very wet meal.

*Can also be used with cooled, freshly boiled water.

In a bottlefeed:

Prepare the infant milk to the manufacturer’s guidelines. Add Instant Carobel as indicated in the feeding guide above. Shake well (for 30-60 seconds). Leave for 3-4 minutes to thicken.Shake again and feed immediately. Do not heat in a microwave – hot spots may occur and cause scalding.

As a spoonfeed or paste:

This method is appropriate for breastfed infants and may be the preferred method for bottlefed infants. It is also suitable for first weaning foods that have too liquid a consistency and for older children and adults. Add Instant Carobel as indicated in the feeding guide above. Stir well and leave for 3-4 minutes to thicken. Stir again and feed immediately, by spoon, prior to and during the feed or meal.

Instant Carobel will continue to thicken up to 4-15 minutes after mixing. Therefore, it is advisable to add Instant Carobel one scoop at a time, stir well and allow to thicken, and then add more Instant Carobel until the desired consistency is achieved.

1 level scoop size = 1.7g. Always use the scoop provided.

Close inner bag after use. Store in a cool dry place. Use within 4 weeks of opening.

Warnings

Cow and Gate Instant Carobel 135g is suitable for full term infants, children and adults. It is not recommended to use Instant Carobel with preterm or low birthweight infants and there is no clinical data available to support its use with these infants. Cow and Gate Instant Carobel is only to be used under medical supervision. All instructions for preparation and use should be followed carefully. Instant Carobel is not suitable as a sole source of nutrition. Discard unfinished thickened feeds or unused made up gel immediately. When feeding a thickened bottle-feed, the teat may require a large hole than normal or a variable flow (split) teat may be used. Infants should be supervised at all times when feeding.
