Hormel Health Labs Introduces IDDSI Level 5 Ready Meats For People With Dysphagia
Hormel Health Labs, part of the Hormel Foods (NYSE:HRL) family of companies, is launching new THICK & EASY® IDDSI Level 5 Ready Meats to provide safe, enjoyable food and meaningful nutrition for those on dysphagia diets.
Preparing meat for someone with dysphagia can be difficult because it has to be ground to a specific, standardized consistency for safety and comfort reasons. The THICK & EASY® IDDSI Level 5 Ready Meats offer a simple way to make sure meats are suitable for IDDSI Levels 5 and 6. In addition to consistency, they offer great convenience in the kitchen and can be prepared in just a matter of minutes.
“Our job is to develop products that are easy to prepare and still taste great for those on dysphagia diets,” said Tim Garry, director of marketing for Hormel Health Labs and a registered dietitian nutritionist. “Our new THICK & EASY® IDDSI Level 5 Ready Meats provide a solid source of protein that can be prepared quickly while still delivering a tasty and enjoyable meal.”
THICK & EASY® IDDSI Level 5 Ready Meats are available in four varieties: chicken, beef, turkey and pork. They can be stored frozen or refrigerated, and the resealable packaging allows for portioning out the necessary amount while saving the rest for later. Each meat can be mixed with a variety of sauces to allow for creativity with dysphagia diets while maintaining IDDSI standards. Simply cook on a stovetop or in the microwave and serve.
