The perfect product to thicken food if you suffer from dysphagia, a side effect common for patients with head, neck of lung cancers or treatments to that area. It can be added to hot or cold foods and liquids to obtain a level of consistency to suit you. The product is both gluten and lactose-free.


Why do people living with cancer recommend this product?

"I missed having the foods I was used to when I began suffering from dysphagia, but this stuff has done the trick and I no longer feel like I am missing out."  

What are the ingredients?

Modified food starch (corn), maltodextrin

How do I use it?

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

    Thick as you want'

    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.
