One way to manage swallowing difficulties is to thicken food and fluids to a consistency considered safe and appropriate by a Speech and Language Therapist (SLT). Thickened food and fluids are easier to control in the mouth and can be more safely swallowed.
There are Nutricia representatives around the country who can visit and support clinicians. Click here to request a visit from one of our representatives.
Nutilis is a thickening powder that is added to foods and fluids to thicken them up. It mixes easily with drinks, puréed food and nutritional supplements.
Unlike other thickeners, it has the optimal Salivary Amylase Resistant features to ensure thickened food and fluid will maintain the prescribed consistency and not turn back to liquid in the mouth.
Nutilis Powder does not alter the taste of thickened food and drinks. Foods and drinks thickened with Nutilis can be chilled, frozen and reheated safely. To get the maximum benefit from Nutilis, it is important to remember that the appearance and presentation of food can make a real difference to the eating experience.
