For people with swallowing problems, receiving proper nutrition is very important. Consuming regular foods and liquids may be difficult for someone with swallowing problems, so using a thickener to change the texture of foods and drinks may be necessary.
The International Dysphagia Diet Standardization Initiative (IDDSI) has created a framework that allows for standardization across the world to improve the lives of over 590 million people worldwide living with dysphagia. Using this framework, we have created and included mixing charts for ThickenUp® and ThickenUp® Clear on package labels to help you achieve desired consistency for your foods and liquids.
