New Dysphagia Nutrition Solutions

 

The convenient, ready-to-drink products require no mixing, while offering a pure appearance and natural taste patients enjoy

Thick It 2013Thick-It has announced the addition of AquaCareH2O Beverages, a line of ready-to-drink, thickened beverages for patients suffering from swallowing difficulties. The AquaCareH2O product line includes water, regular and decaffeinated coffee, and apple, cranberry, and orange juice in both nectar and honey consistencies. AquaCareH2O Thickened Beverages join the Thick-It Brand family of products, which includes Thick-It Food and Beverage Thickeners and Thick-It Purees.

We are excited to have AquaCareH2O Beverages as part of our product line. They offer patients a convenient solution to meet their dysphagia nutrition needs. The water has a pure appearance and natural taste that may improve intake and hydration. And AquaCareH2O Beverages are versatile because they can be chilled, frozen, thawed or heated with no change in consistency, stated Laurie Berger, MBA, RD, LD, Director of Healthcare Initiatives at Precision Foods.

Another update to the Thick-It product line will be a new logo and label design for all products. In order to show the updated product line, all labels, informational sheets and websites will be updated with the new look.

The new logo and packaging will allow for a cleaner, easier-to-read label for patients and caregivers, said Ms. Berger. This updated brand will better reflect our growing product offerings and our dedication to continually develop products that will improve the lives of those with dysphagia, as well as their caregivers.
