Manufacturer instructions for beverage thickeners have been shown to sometimes produce fluids that do not meet National Dysphagia Diet (NDD) recommendations for nectar- and honey-like viscosities.To demonstrate variances in viscosity between brands of thickener and even variances using the same thickener among different beverages, at different time intervals and temperature.Nectar- and honey-like beverages were prepared using manufacturer directions from three brands with five beverage types. Viscosities were measured at multiple time and temperature intervals and compared to the nectar- and honey-like recommended ranges. Recipes were modified for fluid/time/temperature combinations with various viscosities. Costs using modified recipes were compared to original costs.
