ThickenUp® Gel Express

Easy​

  • Convenient preparation, as the gel mixes into the beverages easily, simplifying dissolution1.​
  • Simple to use and prepare in different settings thanks to the dispenser, making it cleaner (less messy) than powder-based thickeners.​
  • Consistent dosing in all types of beverages for all required levels (IDDSI levels 1-4).​
  • More gel can be added to thickened beverages to achieve a thicker texture if needed1.​

 

Fast​

  • Faster at reaching target viscosity than powder-based thickeners 1.
  • Quick and accurate dosing system eliminates the need to measure manually.​
  • Rapidly achieves desired thickness in previously challenging beverages such as cold milk, orange juice, hot coffee and/or oral nutritional supplements 1.

 

Safe​

  • Improves swallowing safety and efficiency by increasing viscosity 2.​
  • Provides a smooth, lump-free texture1.​
  • Compliant with IDDSI guidelines (Levels 1-4).​
  • Amylase-resistant preventing saliva enzymes from degrading the gel1.​
