How to Mix Purathick

Add 1 stick pack or scoop (2.4g) to fluid ounces per chart below to achieve desired consistency. (see chart below)

For best results mix with a shaker. Mix vigorously for 30 seconds, or until powder is completely dissolved.

Let cold liquids stand about 5 minutes until desired consistency is achieved. Warm liquids thicken faster and can be served after 1 minute.

* Designed for use with IDDSI framework (www.iddsi.org). Tests performed by Parapharma Tech using IDDSI flow test with a BD 10ml slip-tip syringe.

** 2.4g equals ONE scoop or a single serving stick pack. Purathick jars include a 2.4g scoop.

Dosage instructions may need to be adjusted based on the viscosity of the original diet. Best if consumed within 30 mins of mixing, as the beverage will continue to gradually thicken for the first hour. Use a little less Purathick when mixing more than 30 minutes in advance and store in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.

Tips for using Purathick

  • To avoid clumps, mix powder into liquid quickly. Blender bottles work great to fully assimilate powder into liquids.
  • Thickened cold liquids may be stored in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. The mixture may continue to gradually thicken over time, but not significantly.  Warm liquids thicken faster and should not be saved.

Use only as directed. Keep out of reach of children. Not for use with children less than 1 year old. Do not use if galactosemia or allergy to galactomannans is suspected. Stop using if rash or other allergic reaction develops, and consult physician immediately. Always consult a physician before thickening liquids to ensure it is appropriate for your individual needs.
