Instant liquid thickener in powder form is used to help in situations where swallowing liquids becomes a safety issue. Individuals with Alzheimer's or other debilitating illnesses can sometimes develop difficulties in swallowing liquids. You may notice that after consuming liquids, the individual has coughing spasms - which is generally due to liquid entering the lungs. The biggest concern is Pneumonia - which can be contracted if the fluid remains in the lungs. Instant liquid thickener is used to help when swallowing liquids becomes a safety issue. Simply add the recommended or desired amount to any hot or cold liquid to thicken. This will give the individual better control to assist in swallowing.
