Reflections on swallowing disorders, IDDSI, thickeners and rheology
"I jumped on board with IDDSI because I’ve always believed it would reduce errors in the food served to people."
Hi, I'm John. Welcome to my blog. Here you will find my observations on dysphagia (dis-fay-juh). Dysphagia is a serious disorder that causes difficulty or discomfort in swallowing. Swallowing difficulties affect as many as 15 million Americans, including Head and Neck Cancer Survivors, Stroke Survivors. and those with Parkinson's Disease and Multiple Sclerosis, just to name a few.
I invite you to explore my site and read more about swallowing disorders, food and beverage thickeners, and SimplyThick (a product I invented). I'll even provide some fun recipes and comic relief from time to time.
