Yes, there is a scoop included in the 4.4oz (125g) canister of Resource®ThickenUp® Clear. One full scoop measures 0.05 oz or 1.4g (approximately 1 teaspoon). This is the amount of thickener required to thicken one 4 fl oz. serving of most beverages to a nectar consistency.
The number of servings available in each packaging option will depend upon the desired consistency level of the thickened beverages. For 4 fl oz beverages, the 1-2-3 rule applies. 1 scoop for Nectar, 2 scoops for Honey, 3 scoops for Pudding. The following is an example of how many servings are available in each format:
Compared to most current starch-based thickeners, a smaller amount of Resource® Thicken Up® Clear powder is required to thicken the same amount of fluid to the same consistency. Please refer to the preparation charts.
RESOURCE®THICKENUP® CLEAR will occasionally trap air bubbles within the water and hold them dispersed throughout the thickened liquid. This can produce a cloudy appearance. Water with less “air” tends to produce a more clear appearance. The following are suggestions to help improve the clarity of water thickened with RESOURCE®THICKENUP® CLEAR :
Bottled water: shake the bottle well, open and let stand to allow the “air” to escape then thicken as per guidelines
Tap water: For best results, collect tap water and let it stand for a period of time before thickening. Boiled water that has cooled and is then thickened provides the best clarity
If you are making thickened water in advance, you may use tap water – experience has shown that while it may be cloudy initially, after overnight refrigeration, the thickened water becomes significantly clearer.
Heating beverages prepared with Resource®ThickenUp® Clear may cause them to appear thinner but the overall consistency should remain within the desired consistency range. Beverages thickened with Resource®ThickenUp® Clear should be reheated only until desired temperature is achieved; do not exceed 180°F and DO NOT BOIL. Thorough stirring is recommended to achieve the best consistency and to prevent hot-spots. Hot beverages should always be checked prior to consuming to minimize the risk of burns.
Refer to the Oral Nutritional Supplement Preparation Charts for details. Please note the time needed to thicken oral supplements may be longer than other beverages, (5-30 minutes depending on the oral supplement).
