SimplyThick® Gel Thickeners thickens beverages without altering the look or taste – without graininess, cloudiness, or aftertaste. Because the pre-measured packets of thickening agent are gel and not powder or starch, they produce clear beverages. Single-use packaging requires no scoops, spoons, or open containers. Just add to liquid and mix briskly (with fork, whisk, blender, or hand mixer) or simply shake in a closed container. Ideal for family members who have trouble swallowing due to ALS, MS, or those recovering from a stroke. Each 4-oz. packet thickens 4 oz. of liquid (1/2 cup) into Nectar or Honey consistency. Use two packets of Honey Thickener to produce pudding consistency.
