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.
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.”
We guarantee TCF product consistency, quality and food safety across all our 24 aged care facilities, serving high standard meals for the minced and moist and pureed diets. The visual appearance of a well-presented ‘normal’ meal being a texture modified meal meant aged care residents were no longer embarrassed sitting with others at mealtimes.
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!
