High Protein supplements for dysphagia – swallowing difficulties

High Protein supplements for dysphagia – swallowing difficulties

15 March 2018

Slõ Milkshakes+ are the 1st powdered high protein supplements for those living with dysphagia.

We’ve created them because those with dysphagia only eat small amounts. It isn’t because they have a small appetite. It is because the condition means they eat very – very slowly. A small meal can take over half an hour to eat. Many meals are left unfinished and the person is left exhausted and won’t have consumed enough calories or protein.

As a result Slõ Milkshakes+ contain a huge amount of protein and calories in a small volume. One 200ml milkshake+ provides 23g+ of protein and 330+ calories. Or, one 15ml tablespoon will provide nearly 2g of protein and 25 calories.

 X 1 tablespoon (15ml) = 2g of protein, 25 calories

Just as importantly, if someone can only take a tablespoon or small sips at a time, they can take all the time they need.

Slõ Milkshakes+ contain our unique thickener which works with milk. Consequently they will stay the same safe-to-swallow consistency all day when kept in the fridge. They will not thicken up or thin out.

Ultimately, this means the drinker will find it much easier to maintain their oral nutritional intake, without being over faced with a meal or getting tired.
