THICKIES is an instant thickening agent for nursing home residents who have trouble swallowing (dysphagia). The binding agent is ideal for thickening hot and cold fluids. Every package contains a handy measuring spoon that will enable you to attain exactly the right consistency. This way, you can be assured that the residents under your care will be able to safely swallow fluids. As opposed to other thickening agents on the market, THICKIES will in no way affect the odour or colour of the substances to which it is added.
