When a patient has swallowing difficulties or dysphagia, there are risks associated with food and drinks being swallowed incorrectly or in an unsafe manner.
A common way to manage swallowing difficulties is to thicken food and drinks to a consistency considered safe and appropriate for the patient. Thickened food and drinks may be easier to control in the mouth and swallowed more safely.
Nutilis is a thickening powder which mixes easily with drinks, puréed food and nutritional supplements.
Unlike other thickeners, it has the optimal amylase-resistant features to ensure thickened food and fluid will maintain the prescribed consistency and not turn back to liquid in the mouth.
Nutilis 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 appearance and presentation of food can make a real difference to the eating experience.
Medicines have benefits and some may have risks. Always read the label carefully and use strictly as directed. If symptoms continue or you have side effects consult your pharmacist or doctor immediately
