  • A gum is used to thicken Karicare AR Formula. The advantage being that a gum remains thick in the mouth & continues to thicken in the stomach. Whereas products containing a starch thickener can be broken down by enzymes in saliva and more quickly in the stomach.



  • Clinical trials have shown it to be safe and effective for managing regurgitation.1



  • Karicare AR is used for the management of regurgitation and is a specialised feed. Please consult your healthcare professional before using to ensure it is the most appropriate formula for your baby.
