Serving wholesome food at healthcare organisations

Texture modified food supports healthy ageing and wellbeing. It’s an essential part of a patient’s treatment or medical recovery and vital that organisations such as aged care and hospitals provide an IDDSI compliant texture modified diet that meets diner taste and variety preferences.

If you’re from an aged care facility or hospital, you can create an account and login through our web portal or shop online using our credit card facilities.

Why is a texture modified diet important in an aged care environment?

Aged care residents on texture modified diets are typically the population most at risk of malnutrition. Malnutrition in aged care varies between 2-83% and unintentional weight loss is a common side effect.

The traditional production process of pureed nursing home food typically undermines the nutritional concentration of the meal provided, meaning a greater volume of food is needed to reach optimum levels of nutrition.

“In a study of 900 national health residents, 48% experienced at least one weight loss episode of more than 5% of their body weight – showed greater risk of death.”

(Sullivan 2004)

Malnutrition impacts patients in the following ways:

  • Weight loss
  • Dysphagia (swallowing and chewing problems)
  • Increased falls and fractures
  • Increased infection or reduced immune function
  • Depression
  • Pressure ulcers or delayed wound healing
  • Decreased mobility
  • Hospital admissions
  • Reduced quality of life.

Since using your product, it has literally changed the lives of the residents on texture modified foods.

Not only the taste, but the overall presentation of TCF foods is amazing. I serve with the sauce/gravy in jugs on the side, which is poured at the table to enhance the presentation and dining experience.

The ease of use – love the zip lock bags, zero wastage, and minimal preparation time.

Also, Michelle from your office is fantastic. She was so helpful when we first started using your product. Thanks!
