Thick & Easy™ Clear is built on the strong, trusted heritage of Thick & Easy™, the UK’s leading instant food thickener (IMS 2016). Fresenius Kabi has over 20 years of experience supporting patients with dysphagia.

Using Thick & Easy™ Clear Using Thick & Easy Clear

Thick & Easy™ Clear can be added to all hot and cold liquids and nutritional supplements to develop a thicker consistency and prevent aspiration.

It provides total clarity in water or other liquids.

1. Using the scoop in the tin to add the recommended number of level scoops of powder into an empty dry glass

2. Add 100ml of desired liquid to the glass, stir briskly with a whisk or fork until dissolved

3. Leave to stand for a few minutes

 

Thickening larger quantities: Thick & Easy™ Clear can be mixed into liquids using a food processor. Keep liquid refrigerated until ready to use.

To aid palatability, you may need to prepare drinks weaker than normal, and some drinks may take longer to reach the consistency. For example milky drinks, add Thick & Easy Clear into a dry cup, pour in the milk and whisk briskly for 30 seconds, then leave to stand for 5 minutes.

Both Thick & Easy™ and Thick & Easy™ Clear can be used to thicken fruit juice, coffee, tea, alcoholic drinks, meat stock or any other liquid.

All drinks can be prepared in advance and refrigerated until required.
