We do not currently recommend Jelly Drops to people with swallowing difficulties or suspected swallowing difficulties. If you have concerns, please consult a Speech and Language Therapist prior to use.
Jelly Drops are soft, denture-friendly and easy to chew, similar to a traditional jelly, but do not melt, dissolve or bust as you might expect. This means they must be chewed thoroughly before swallowing.
The IDDSI Framework provides a common terminology to describe food textures and drink thickness as a way to improve safety for individuals with swallowing difficulties. Independent Speech and Language Therapists have assessed Jelly Drops to be level 7 under this framework.
