Product Description

Dysphagia (Swallowing Difficulty) and the Need for Thickening Liquids  

If you have difficulty swallowing, you’re not alone: infants, children, and adults of all ages–especially the elderly–can be afflicted with Dysphagia, a condition that causes Swallowing Issues or difficulty. Certain diseases can instigate its onset, including:

  • Stroke
  • Neurological Disease
  • Dementia
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Muscular Dystrophy
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Esophageal Cancer

Whatever the cause, difficulty swallowing means you shy away from drinking and eating what you need, and this could lead to Malnutrition and Dehydration.

Thickened liquids prevents this by facilitating a chewing motion that eases swallowing. In a Dysphagia diet, various liquid consistencies create appropriate textures for this purpose.

Nutra Balance Thik & Clear Thickener for Dysphagia

Some manufacturers use cornstarch or food starch to thicken liquids, which are inexpensive, but they leave a starchy aftertaste and typically continue to thicken the longer they set.
