Getting proper nutrition is vital and challenging for those who struggle with dysphagia or other swallowing disorders. Food thickeners provide a more enjoyable eating experience and encourage normal swallowing rehabilitation. There are a few brands of thickener to choose from. Active is a cornstarch based instant thickener. Thick-It Food Thickener works in hot or cold beverages and pureed foods. It comes in an unflavored, freeze-thaw stable dry mix powder that won’t lump so food and beverage thickness options are more customizable, creating the appropriate consistency for the user. Also available from Thick-It are AquaCareH2O Read-to-Use coffee, apple and orange juice flavored beverages as well as thickened water in honey and nectar consistencies. Thick-It pureed canned foods are also available for those that need a quick and delicious meal.
