The ability to chew or swallow properly may be affected due to old age or a number of conditions associated with old age. Around 30% of the elderly have some degree of swallowing difficulties, a condition called dysphagia. People with dysphagia have problems eating, limiting their food options, which consequently affect their appetite and may lead malnutrition. Senior Deli is committed to developing products for people with dysphagia. Our products include food and drinks thickener, food softener, food gellant and pre-packed soft meals, giving them more choices of food, helping them to eat safely and maintain a balanced diet.
