  • Thick-It Clear Advantage
    Thick-It Clear Advantage xanthan-based food and beverage thickener maintains consistent viscosity over time with the ability of being heated or frozen. Now available in Nectar and Honey Single Serve Packets....

  • Given that most people with dysphagia also have compromised immune systems, this was a great concern. After years of additional research, Thick-It developed a xanthan formula supporting proper absorption of nutrients and medications—Thick-It Clear Advantage - which offers numerous benefits over both starch and other xanthan-based thickeners:


    Unlike starch, xanthan-based Thick-It Clear Advantage maintains a consistent viscosity over time, giving you more flexibility in mixing and serving and your residents more time to enjoy.


    Clear and flavorless, Thick-It Clear Advantage won’t affect the taste or appearance of food or beverages, encouraging better hydration and nutrition for residents.


    Now, your dysphagia residents can safely enjoy everything from hot beverages to cold juice to frozen fruit pops—Thick-It Clear Advantage maintains its consistency, even after being exposed to a range of temperatures.


    Unlike other xanthan thickeners, Thick-It Clear Advantage mixes easily with supplements and medications to ensure that your residents absorb more of their prescribed medications and the nutrients in their diets.
