Easily modifies liquids and pureed foods for people with swallowing disorders. Thick-It brings the joy of eating back to people with swallowing problems (called dysphagia). When mixed with hot or cold, thick or thin liquids and pureed foods, Thick-It produces any desired consistency quickly, easily and controllably without changing the taste or appearance of the liquids and foods it thickens. Thick-It adds 30 calories per 2 tablespoons for nourishment and it is low in sodium. It helps prevent dehydration because it does not bind fluids. Thick-It is recommended by doctors, speech-language pathologists and dietitians for patients in hospitals, nursing homes and rehabilitation facilities as well as at home. ADA Exchange: 2 tablespoons of Thick-It = 1/2 fruit exchange = 7g carbohydrates (metabolized like fruit sugar).

Modified Corn Starch and Maltodextrin.
