Thick-It Food Thickener Powder - Foodservice Formula


Thick-It food thickener is ideal for adding a thicker consistency to foods, providing a more enjoyable eating experience for people with dysphagia or swallowing disorders. Developed as a tool for professionals in hospitals, long-term care facilities and rehab, Thick-It has evolved to meet the demands of the specialized foodservice sector to serve the needs of all patients. Thick-It allows you to mix a consistency appropriate to each patient's needs and is more economical than pre-thickened products.

With Thick-It Instant Food Thickener, you save two ways:

  • Value pricing saves you money
  • More thickening power increases yield per can

Today's healthcare facilities have the difficult challenge of providing superior patient care while keeping costs as low as possible. Thick-It is a brand committed to healthcare. This foodservice formula and economical price let you use a premium product without sacrificing your bottom line.

To better serve healthcare professionals and their patients, Honey- and Nectar-like consistency is available in PCs

Thick-It thickens hot or cold, thin or thick liquids and pureed food to any desired consistency quickly, easily and controllably. Dry mix powder won’t lump or affect flavor to allow customizing mixture appropriate to user’s needs and is freeze-thaw stable. No fluid binding to affect hydration and is Kosher approved.

Simply add the desired amount while stirring briskly and wait 30 seconds for food to thicken. Depending upon the amount of product you use, you can arrive at nectar, honey or pudding consistencies. Thicken everything from fruit juices to carbonated beverages to milk, drink mixes, tea, coffee, lemonade, broth and pureed vegetables.

Thick-It is the No. 1 selling brand that revolutionized dysphagia care; that is, the needs of people who have swallowing problems. Thick-It is ideal for any health care environment as well as for home use.

Thick-It Food Thickener Features:

  • Won't cause aspiration
  • Dissolves instantly
  • Won't over-thicken

Most affordable thickener

Pros:
Low cost.
Cons:
Can form clumps. Inconvenient for travel.
Best Uses:
Anyone w/dysphagia.
Describe Yourself:
Medical Professional. Mom.

I use this for my 1 year old who has swallowing difficulty. It can clump sometimes and it tends to continue thickening the longer it sits out. Therefore, if I prepare a cup of a beverage for her and she doesn't drink the entire quantity, I have to dump it because it becomes too thick and she has a weak suck. Overall, it is a good product due to it's affordability.

BOTTOM LINE Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Question:
My mom has been using Thick-it for nearly 2 years. Are there any side affect when using Thick-It long term. My concern is that she is not getting enough liquid into her system. She drinks no less than 8-10 8 fl oz. of some type of beverage a day, usually decaf tea or Gatorade, she doesn't like plain thick water. (She recently fell due to dehydration).

Answer:
My mom has been using Thick-it for about the same amount of time. By thickening the fluid there is no long term side affects from this, it is made up of mainly starch. By using Thick-it does not mean she is not getting the fluid she needs on a daily basis. If your mom is drinking 8-10 8 oz of beverages with the Thick-it on a daily basis she should not have been dehydrated.
