This was the first nutritional product launched by Sutherland Health. It is ideally suited for the diets of patients with swallowing difficulties (Dysphagia), a side effect that may be caused by Strokes, Motor Neurone Disease, Parkinson’s disease or Cerebral Palsy.
The product is designed to rapidly thicken most liquids and foods such as pureed apple, mashed potato, tea, coffee, fruit juices, soups, sauces etc without masking the flavour or leaving an aftertaste.
Thixo-D Original disperses with stirring within a short time, to give any required viscosity, which will remain stable. Thixo-D Original is a gluten free food carbohydrate which remains stable both for freezing and microwaving. No blender is required, so drinks can be easily prepared either in the wards or at home with minimum effort and delay. It is also fully metabolised, so that the water associated with it becomes part of the patient’s total fluid intake. This can be a significant consideration if there is a possibility of the patient becoming dehydrated.
Thixo-D Original has been cleared by the A.C.B.S for prescription use.
