Many individuals with dysphagia follow a modified diet of thickened and puréed foods and beverages often prescribed by a speech-language pathologist or other healthcare professional. While a modified diet of IDDSI-compliant[i] foods and beverages can help patients ensure safe swallowing and proper nutrition, it can be difficult to navigate.
To make sure those with dysphagia, as well as their caregivers and families, have convenient access to a variety of easy-to-use and satisfying products, the Thick-It® brand offers food & beverage thickeners, ready-to-drink beverages, purées, and hydration care solutions:
- Thick-It® Purées, with options for entrées, side dishes, and desserts, make it possible for those with dysphagia to enjoy healthy meals at home without the hassle of cooking and preparing foods to the correct consistency. Purées can be purchased individually as well as in protein and vegetable variety packs.
- Thick-It® Clear Advantage® Ready-to-Drink Beverages provide an assortment of convenient, flavorful options to help dysphagia patients stay hydrated—including juices, tea, coffee, and our patented Clear Advantage® Thickened Water. Available in single- and multi-serve resealable bottles, our beverages are pre-thickened to mildly thick (nectar) or moderately thick (honey) consistencies and can be purchased by individual flavor or in a variety pack.
- Thick-It® hydration care solutions promote all day, every day hydration for everyone. We’ve partnered with the Sqwincher® brand to offer safe and reliable thickened beverages combined with great tasting electrolyte formulas, including Clear Advantage® Thickened Water + Sugar Free and Low Calorie Sqwincher® Qwik Stik® ZERO Combo Packs and Clear Advantage® HydraICE™ Electrolyte Freezer Pops.
- Thick-It® Food & Beverage Thickeners let those with swallowing disorders safely enjoy the flavors of their favorite homemade dishes and drinks without altering the flavors they love. Reliable, affordable, and easy-to-use, our thickeners can be served in hot or cold meals.
Our goal is to make this process simple; whether online, in store, or by phone, shop the way that’s best for you.
