Stress free drinks for Dysphagia
Those with dysphagia must have just the right amount of thickener in all their drinks. Unfortunately ordinary thickeners don’t work the
same way in every drink. In some they don’t work at all! Worse still, they can make drinks look and taste so bad they are undrinkable.
As a result, when people see thickener scooped into their drinks they can only ever hope they won’t suffer a painful and
embarrassing coughing fit or find it depressing to drink.
But it doesn’t have to be that way and drinking can be enjoyed again, using our sachets to make a Slõ Drink.
We test each drink someone could need or want with various thickener formulations; analysing how its temperature, sugar, fat and pH levels
affects each thickeners’ ability to thicken safely. When we’ve identified the best formulation, we run more tests to calculate the precise amount
required to change the drink into a specific consistency and then put enough for one drink in a sachet.
You simply add the contents into a drink to change it into a Slõ Drink. They can be drinks needed for nutrition and medication, favourite drinks
that can be used for hydration or drinks people want to relax with to help them cope with their dysphagia like a glass of wine or a beer.
They will all look like an ordinary drinks and taste like them – they just flow slowly and can be drunk without worry.
