Rated 5 out of 5 by AR from Worth the cost... it really works! My husband has needed to thicken all beverages for several years now. Altho skeptical, I bought a small can of Thicken Up Clear for him to try. He is thrilled. For the first time he can make a drink and it will remain thickened until he finishes it. All others he has tried separate quickly, increasing the risk of choking after the first few minutes. Thank you, Nestle! This truly is an improvement to his quality of life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lollypop from Best on the market When I'm in the market and I see people looking at other thickeners, I always recommend Thicken up to them. It is the only thickener I use. There is absolutely no taste. When you have to use a thickener in your water to enable you to swallow food, the last thing you want is to have the taste of the food affected. And you don't have to use very much. Just a teaspoon with thicken a 12 oz glass of water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lolly from Wonderful This product is by far the best thing I have found on the market You only need to use a fraction of the amount required by other thickeners and it adds absolutely no taste or texture to anything you add it too I have even used it to thicken sauces, soups and gravies It has made all the difference in my diet

Rated 5 out of 5 by Me T from Stays consistent thickness Purchased for my dad. Only thickener that doesn't get thicker over time. Other brands become undrinkable after a short time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GB RD from Used Thicken Up Clear I used this product with my mother for 13 months. I tried other product samples, and found this to be the easier product to mix with her Boost (doing 1/2 bottle at a time) and the easiest container to store. I have recommended this product to patients.
