In 1977, Public Television broadcast a program devoted to the problem of feeding both the elderly and people with throat problems preventing them from swallowing normally.  As a result, death by asphyxiation occurred when liquids went into the lungs instead of going into the stomach.

In order to prevent the above from happening, the TV program showed how dietitians in health care institutions would thicken liquids using various means such as mixing gelatins into liquids to make them sufficiently thick enough to go into the stomach instead of into the lungs; using starches to thicken liquids; and various other means to make liquids sufficiently thick enough so that they would be digested in the stomach instead of finding their way into the lungs of people unable to swallow properly due to any number of ailments which inhibit the proper swallowing of food, and in particular, liquids.

Bernard Food Industries, Inc. developed THIXX™ - An Instant Food & beverage All-Purpose Thickener for Health Care use.

THIXX™ has been formulated in such a way that it permits for a wide latitude in determining the degree of consistency (thickening) which may be desired.

THIXX™ can be use in both hot and cold beverages and food as well as the thickening of pureed foods.

THIXX™ can be particularly useful in thickening beverages so that even in the most extreme swallowing problem cases, it can help in bringing liquids into the stomach instead of normally thin-bodied liquids such as juices, milk, etc., going into the lungs and causing asphyxiation.

THIXX™ - another development from Bernard Food Industries, Inc. for use by the health care professional.
