Struggling to obtain your usual pre-thickened ONS?

25 October 2023

Clinicians and healthcare practitioners across the UK are currently reporting a shortage of their usual pre-thickened oral nutritional supplements.

If you’re experiencing the same frustration, you can prescribe our Slõ Milkshake+ as an alternative.

A pre-thickened powdered ONS provides an easy-to-use, great-tasting solution that flows slõ to deliver the nutritional boost you’re looking for, safely.

Slõ Milkshake+ are presented in handy pre-measured sachets that you mix with fresh whole milk to provide as many calories as a small meal. No lumps, no metallic aftertaste, and no issues around measuring the right amount of thickener.

Available in strawberry, banana and chocolate flavours at IDDSI Level 1, 2 and 3 they provide a safe solution that caters to the tastes and needs of all your dysphagia patients.

Nutrition that flows slo for safer swallowing

Each Milkshake+ is packed with essential nutrients. The + stands for + protein, + calories and + 25 essential vitamins and minerals. And because each pre-measured sachet is mixed with fresh milk straight from the fridge, you can be sure your patients are getting all the nutrition and hydration they need safely, throughout the day.

More protein per ml than any other pre-thickened ONS available!
