HomeAbout Us Mission

Our Mission

  • To develop a standardised way of naming and describing texture modified foods and thickened liquids for people with dysphagia across the lifespan

  • Our process is intended to be person-focused, rather than profession focused. We seek to develop a global terminology that will ‘work’ for all cultures and that will be accompanied by practical and valid measurement techniques that will facilitate use by persons with dysphagia, caregivers, clinicians, food service professionals and industry partners.

  • To seek a common language that can be used for technical, cultural, professional and non-professional uses. We believe this should be a living document, changing as needs change.
