What is The IDDSI Framework?

The IDDSI Framework

Launched in 2015, the IDDSI Framework enables those referring to thickened foods and beverages to consistently describe those foods textures and drinks thickness. It also standardizes testing methods for pureed foods and thickened beverages to allow those preparing foods and beverages to more easily and accurately ensure the dietary needs of patients are being met.
