The topic of this Special Issue of Nutrients is the clinical application of rheology of fluids and texture-modified food for patients suffering from oropharyngeal dysphagia. We will discuss the properties that cause the therapeutic effect of thickening agents and texture-modified foods, their effect on different phenotypes of patients and how they should be applied in clinical practice, and the need for evidence based classifications and recommendations.
