Everyone should be able to ingest nourishment enjoyably. You can provide dysphagia patients with improved eating and drinking experiences, whilst helping caregivers do their jobs with instant-thickener advances from Ingredion.
Ingredion's NATIONAL 77-1760 starch thickener combines the positive attributes of starches and gums in an instant, easy-to-use ingredient that thickens any liquid, hot or cold, to one of three different texture levels. Look into this proven performer and see how it preserves the flavour and aroma of the foods and beverages that elderly patients so want to enjoy. It's easy for caregivers to use - and the thickened drinks and foods stay stable over time.
When it comes to medical sip and tube feeds the right nutritional carbohydrate source is key. Our CRYSTAL TEX® LTF dextrin is an excellent source of complex carbohydrate which can be used at high levels (20%) to provide the required nutritional balance by keeping viscosity low to enable easy flow through the tube.
With growing needs from health-compromised populations—including the elderly, infants and young children—we’re pushing the boundaries of ingredient science to find new answers in medical nutrition. Collaborate with us at Ingredion Idea Labs™ innovation centres to take these products to the next level.
