Our Special Pantryalso stocks a collection ofthickeners. These are used by people with swallowing difficulty and they come in the form of beverage thickeners likeToromi Smile or food thickeners likeCold Mousse Base. How do they work?
Beverage thickenersare added to drinks. As thickened fluids flow down your throat at a slower rate, this gives you more time to swallow and reduces the risk of choking.
Food thickenersare used to bind the juices and solid content of pureed food so as to create a uniform texture that is safer swallowing. Otherwise, the juices may accidentally slip down your throat and cause choking.
