Used after a stroke has made life easier for my husband to swallow!
Same as my mothers gets at the care-home! Use it to thicken flavored drink-yogurt from Lidl, which she loves, promoting hydration! For some reason however it requires a lot of powder with sweetened soya milk, and a little vanilla essence. Can highly recommend though, as it does not impart a starchy taste/texture as I've found with another brand.
Very helpful for a relative of mine who through illness can not drink water anymore. Can be added to squash too
