What are the benefits of using food thickeners?

For dysphagia or swallowing difficulties. Older adults, particularly the very elderly, may experience reduced muscle tone in the esophagus and pharynx, affecting swallowing.

Seniors with dementia may forget how to do activities of daily living, including chewing and swallowing. This increases the risk of choking or aspiration as the food or even liquid may enter the trachea (windpipe). If this happens often, the person may be at risk of having pneumonia.

Serious swallowing difficulty can also occur in patients with neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, head or spinal injury, cancer of the esophagus, neck or head, reflux disease and stroke. Whatever the cause of swallowing difficulty, many experts believe that modifying a person’s diet through the use of food thickeners can be beneficial.

To improve nutrition. Aside from aspiration, other complications of swallowing difficulty (dysphagia) are dehydration and malnutrition. That is why, it is very important to choose a product that doesn’t only thicken beverage but also provide calories, protein and other important nutrients.

All products listed below are specially formulated with excellent quality protein and other nutrients. This helps a person gain weight, maintain weight and for stress, injury or surgical recovery.

Do they affect taste or flavour?
