Texture-Modified Diets

Dining with dignity

Our award-winning, texture-modified range provides appetising softer and pureed food for people with dysphagia (swallowing difficulties).

Due to the high risk of choking, malnutrition and aspiration pneumonia, dysphagia can be a serious threat to those who live with it, which can include people with dementia, Parkinson’s disease and stroke.

Psychological wellbeing can also deteriorate, with many sufferers experiencing anxiety during mealtimes, and growing isolation if they start to avoid eating with others.

At apetito, we understand how vital a good meal is to maintaining health and wellbeing, so we’ve embraced innovative technology to help people look forward to mealtimes again.

What makes our texture-modified meals so good?

Awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation, this range includes over 70 nutritionally balanced softer foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner, all blended to a consistent texture that meet the BDA and National Descriptor Guidelines for dysphagia diets.

The food holds its shape after cooking so it looks appetising, and thanks to our talented chefs, flavour is not compromised. The pre-blended, individual portions means there’s no bacterial risk from blending equipment and handling.
