Thick & Easy Instant Food Thickener

Thick & Easy Instant Food Thickener is a white powder designed to be added directly to hot and cold foods and drinks. Thick & Easy quickly and easily thickens foods and fluids for patients who have difficulty swallowing (dysphagia), e.g conditions such as stroke, Parkinson's disease, muscular dystrophy, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis, malignancies of the oral cavity and throat, neurological disorders caused by injury or disease.

Thick & Easy
is available in a 225g resealable tin, as 9g sachets or in a 4.54kg catering pack - simply choose above.

Ingredients: modified maize starch, maltodextrin

Thick & Easy is gluten and lactose free.
Thick & Easy can be added to all hot and cold liquids, nutritional supplements and all types of hot or cold pureed foods to develop a thicker consistency and prevent aspiration.

Thickening liquids

Simply sprinkle in the desired amount (see table) and stir briskly with a whisk or fork until dissolved. The liquid will thicken within 1 minute of mixing. If a thicker
consistency is required, stir in a further ½ scoop per 100ml.

Thickening larger quantities


Thick & Easy can be mixed into liquids using a food processor. Keep food/liquid refrigerated until ready to use.

Thickening pureed food


Add the desired quantity of Thick & Easy and blend until a smooth consistency develops. If the texture becomes thicker than required, simply add a small
amount of liquid (water, juice, milk) and re-liquidise.
