The International Dysphagia Standardization Initiative (IDDSI), formed in 2013 to help set a new global standard in practice and terminology in all care settings and in all cultures. Texture modified foods and thickened liquids are all classified into one of eight levels, with specific qualitative and/or quantitative measurements. The specific number guide, terminology and color system initiated by IDDSI is being accepted and adopted worldwide. 128 countries are engaged and the standards have been translated into 51 languages – helping bring consistency to those on a pureed food diet.
FruitBlendz is specially formulated to meet the needs of both patients, looking for pureed meals for adults and children – and the professionals providing care. All six FruitBlendz flavors are IDDSI Compliant and packed in shelf-stable containers; making storing and serving safe, simple and cost-effective.
