How to Use Thick-It® Variety Packs

Thick-It® Brand Ready-to-Drink Variety Pack

Although swallowing disorders can make it difficult to stay hydrated and well-fed, the Thick-It® team believes everyone deserves to enjoy the simple pleasure of their favorite meals and beverages. The Thick-It® brand offers three variety packs to make staying hydrated and nourished easy and enjoyable.

Purée Variety Packs

Thick-It® Purées make it possible for those with dysphagia to enjoy healthy meals at home without the hassle or worry of cooking and preparing foods to the correct consistency. Available in 14 varieties for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert, Thick-It® brand’s nutritious and satisfying purées are fully cooked and ready to eat. Just open, heat, and serve. Unused portions can be frozen for future use.

To reheat, follow these instructions:

Stovetop: Heat contents over medium heat until warm; stir occasionally.

Microwave: Spoon contents into microwave-safe container and cover. Microwave on high for 30 to 60 seconds or until warm. Stir before serving. Microwave ovens vary, so cooking time may need to be adjusted.

With variety packs, those with swallowing difficulties can enjoy multiple vegetable and protein purées in delicious and dysphagia-safe recipes. For caregivers who want to explore flavors and expand their kitchen repertoire, take it up a notch with one of 11 IDDSI-compliant recipes available in the Variety Comes to the Table recipe book, created by the Thick-It® brand and a team of registered dietitians.

Purée variety packs are available in the following:

Purée Protein Variety Pack, including Seasoned Chicken Patty, Beef Stew, Beef Lasagna, Beef in Barbecue Sauce (Smoke Flavor Added), and Chicken à la King.
