Price Change for Gelmix and Purathick Products

April 28, 2022

Dear Valued Customer:

We know that having access to quality natural products is important to you, and we are proud to provide you with the best thickeners for those requiring a thickened modified diet. Despite many cost increases on our raw materials over the last 5 years, we have managed to absorb and maintain the prices on our products to you.

During this past year, we have seen unprecedented cost increases in all materials. Organic gums, especially carob bean gum and tara gum, are suffering from a critical global shortage. Due to the significant cost increase this shortage caused, we can no longer offset the cost increase internally. In order to continue to offer the best quality ingredients and thickening products, the prices of all Gelmix and Purathick products have increased.

We are committed to continue providing you with the best thickening options and our customer service team is ready to answer any questions or concerns you may have. We appreciate your understanding through this difficult time.
