Viscosity and dysphagia
Enliven and Flavour Creations recommend dysphagia patients or anybody with swallowing difficulties to consult a Speech Language Therapist for evaluation of any swallowing difficulties and recommendation of suitable products. If following a Texture C diet, Flavour Creations recommends consulting a Speech Language Therapist and/or Dietitian before consumption.
Flavour Creations Hot Beverages White Tea and White Coffee come in two thicknesses:
- mildly thick in viscosity (150) – This means these fluids easily flow off a spoon with effort required to drink through a standard bore straw. They are sip-able and pours quickly from spoon but slower than thin drinks.
- moderately thick in viscosity (400) – This means these fluids can be drunk from a cup, eaten with a spoon but cannot be eaten with a fork because it drips slowly in dollops through the prongs. Effort is required to suck through a standard or wide bow straw. Has smooth texture with no bits, so no oral processing or chewing is required.
