Our Innovative Approach

Oak House Kitchen has years of experience in this area and has done extensive research and developments in the kitchen and lab to simplify the approach to creating food and drinks for dysphagia diets. This has led to the creation of ORAL – A systematic method which allows you to easily identify unwanted textures and ensure that results are correct.

Use ORAL to Create Recipes for Dysphagia

ORAL has been widely supported and endorsed as an approach to food and drink texture modification and we have seen phenomenal results for cooks and catering teams across hospital, care home and domestic settings.

We have clearly seen where ORAL principles have been used across these settings results have led to improved choice, quality, safety and cost.
