Those with difficulty swallowing can enjoy a delicious, refreshing beverage with Thick & Easy Thickened Beverage, in Nectar Consistency. These drinks are specially designed for those with certain kinds of dysphagia. Meeting the International Dysphagia Diet Standardization Initiatives (IDDI) guidelines for Level 2 beverages, this is a “mildly thick” liquid, at a nectar consistency. Normal liquids are tough for those with dysphagia to swallow, because the weaker throat muscles struggle to block liquids from entering airways, leading to a risk of aspiration. On the other hand, Thick & Easy travels more slowly down the throat, passing safely into the body.
Not only is this drink designed for those with dysphagia - it’s also delicious! With flavors like apple juice, kiwi strawberry, cranberry juice and iced tea, these beverages provide a dignified and enjoyable way to get in some extra hydration!Key Benefits
