International Dysphagia Diet Standardisation Initiative Terms on Packaging

International Dysphagia Diet Standardisation Initiative Terms on Packaging

23 May 2018

As the IDDSI is launching this year here in the UK and all our Slõ Drinks match the IDDSI flow rates, we are changing our packaging include its descriptors.

By adding them to the original terms we hope to accommodate those that want to continue to use the existing terms and those that want to use the IDDSI ones which ultimately should ensure patients always receive drinks at the right consistency.

The packaging will first appear on the Slo Milkshakes+ from early June as the existing stock is sold.

In addition to the packaging we have put some IDDSI resources including an IDDSI Translator and details of how to do the IDDSI flow test in previous blogs which you can read by clicking the links below:
