Neil recently spoke at a dysphagia chef event and he explained what a thick puree dysphagia diet is. It is also known as Texture C and refers to food that has a thick smooth consistency.

In essence it is food that has been puréed and does not require chewing. It is smooth throughout with no ‘bits’ - food may need to be sieved to achieve this. It is moist, can be held on a fork without dripping through and there shouldn’t be any loose fluid that has separated off. Sorry folks it means - NO jelly or ice cream.
