Thick-It 2 Extra Strength Instant Food Thickener

Thick-It Makes It Good and Easy for People with Dysphagia and Swallowing Problems

Extra Strength Thick-It 2 is a concentrated version of Thick-It® Original so, about half the amount is needed to achieve the desired consistency. Extra Strength Thick-It 2® is preferred by diabetics, because less is used, and has fewer carbohydrates per serving. Thick-It and concentrated Thick-It 2 Instant Food Thickeners are ideal for thickening liquids and foods. For people with swallowing disorders, Thick-It and Thick-It 2 thicken hot or cold, thin or thick liquids and pureed food to any desired consistency quickly, easily and controllably. Simply add the desired amount of Thick-It while stirring briskly and wait 30-60 seconds for most foods/fluids to thicken. Depending on the amount of Thick-It powder you use, you can achieve nectar-like, honey-like or pudding-like consistencies. You can thicken fruit juices, carbonated beverages, milk, tea, coffee, lemonade, broth, pureed vegetables, pureed meats and more.

Thick-It Instant Food Thickener quickly and easily thickens beverages and pureed foods without changing their appearance, aroma or taste. It is used by healthcare professionals in hospitals and nursing homes for people experiencing swallowing problems or dysphagia. For those individuals coping with dysphagia at home, Thick-It Instant Food Thickener is also available through retail pharmacies.

Introduced in 1987, Thick-It was the first instant food thickener on the market. It was joined in 2005 by Thick-It Purees; a line of great-tasting, shelf-stable pureed foods. Thick-It Purees are ideal for operators needing the convenience of “heat and serve” pureed foods and/or for emergency needs. Their development, carefully overseen by Precision Foods’ Registered Dietitian, was driven by a passionate commitment to deliver pureed food with reliable consistency, proper nutrition and superior flavor. For nearly 20 years, foodservice directors, dietitians, speech pathologists and home care-givers across the country have relied on the Thick-It brand for quality products they can count on to treat people dealing with dysphagia.

Don't use at all.
Describe Yourself:
First Time User.

I've hesitated to buy the powdered thickener because of the mixing. This one claimed to dissolve easy, but it doesn't and I ended up with milk full of lumps that I couldn't get mixed and unthickened milk.

I was trying to determine what ingredients are in thick-it2. I have used the regular thickit for my wife for several years and have been very happy with it, except I have all these plastic containers sitting around the house.

We use thickit for our disabled son but it doesnt thicken his ensure. Is there a product that will thicken ensure so he doesnt choke every day after his drink? He really needs the calories and vitamins it provides so we cant just switch it to juice or whatever.
