If you are living with dysphagia (a swallowing difficulty), you will be familiar coughing and the feeling of choking when drinking. To prevent this, you need thickened drinks that flo slo.
Consequently, we have made it quick and easy for you to provide Slõ Drinks that are
safer and more comfortable to drink.
We analysed all the drinks you could need or want to see how a drinks’ fats, sugars, Ph levels and temperature affect a thickener. That identified which thickener worked most effectively for each drink.
A small number of drinks were very difficult to thicken and so we provide these ready-to-drink. For the rest, we put a measured dose of our thickener in a sachet so you just “mix and make”.
Decide the drink you want, how slõw it should flow e.g. Slightly thick, level 1 for a very slight swallowing difficulty– mix the appropriate sachet into your drink and create a Slõ cold drink, Slõ fizzy drink; a glass of Slõ Wine, Beer or Cider.
They will all look and taste as good as normal drinks, be safer to drink and comfortable to swallow.
