Clinical nutrition

You work to improve the lives of those with specific nutritional needs. You can provide dysphagia patients with safe and improved eating and drinking experiences and help caregivers do their jobs with instant-thickener advances from Ingredion. You can deliver products with prebiotic fibers that help support patients’ digestive and immune health.

Our UNI-PURE® Dys-sperse dysphagia thickener combines the positive attributes of starches and gums in an instant, easy-to-use ingredient that thickens any liquid, hot or cold, to one of three different viscosity levels. It preserves the flavor and aroma of the beverages that dysphagia patients so want to enjoy. It’s easy for caregivers to use—and the thickened drinks and foods stay stable over time.

Uncover our line of dysphagia thickening starches and trust the experience and reliability of Ingredion to help you deliver safe and cost effective thickened beverages to your customers and their patients.

NUTRAFLORA® prebiotic fiber, for example, helps increase the level of good bacteria in the gut and is scientifically proven to support digestive and immune health[1]. It is one of the most effective prebiotic fibers on the market today.

With growing needs from health-compromised populations, we’re pushing the boundaries of ingredient science to find new answers in medical nutrition. Collaborate with us at Ingredion Idea Labs™ innovation centers to take these products to the next level.
