Foods that help dry mouth?

I have trouble swallowing because my mouth and throat are very dry. I'm trying to eat soft, moist foods and it should be easy to come up with some, but it seems so limiting.

I'm eating baby carrots, which surprisingly make my mouth feel less dry because of the juices and water they are in inside the bag. I need water close by since the carrot itself doesn't go down easily. The moistness doesn't last, unfortunately. I'm hoping that chewing carrots is good for my teeth like apples are. Apple sauce is the best thing I've eaten since being diagnosed with Sjogren's. Soup would be good, but most soups contain msg and I can't have that.

I want to come up with a list of foods that are easy to swallow. Any suggestions? Pudding and ice cream are easy ones, but not healthy.
