With over 15 years' experience of providing patients with dysphagia with safe, consistent results, Thick & Easy™ is the UK's leading instant food thickener.
Foods that have been thickened with Thick & Easy™ accomplish two significant things which help swallowing-impaired patients. First, in being converted to a mashed potato consistency, the food becomes dense and cohesive, which eliminates the problem of thin puréed food running down the throat and into the lungs. Since Thick & Easy™ binds all the liquid in the puréed foods with the food pulp, the risk of unbound liquid running down the throat is virtually eliminated.
Second, Thick & Easy™ adds height and texture to puréed foods, which creates a more visually appealing presentation. Since an important part of the dining experience is that we 'eat with our eyes', the psychological status and appetite of a patient can be significantly improved with attractive plate presentations of puréed foods.
