Improve consumer compliance by relying on Roquette’s excipients to formulate stable, easy-to-administer Oral Disintegrating Tablets (ODT).
To obtain the required rheological film properties suitable for softgel capsules, a non-GMO pregelatinized hydroxypropyl pea starch with an optimum amount of amylose, named LYCOAT® RS780 was tested and compared with HP corn and HP potato starch.
- Capsules made with pea starch had higher burst strength and elasticity.
- Starches as film former materials can provide alternatives to gelatin for softgel capsules industry.
An ageing global population, consumer demand for greater convenience and the need to improve patient compliance are driving the development of new platforms for orally disintegrating dosage forms. Discover Roquette latest innovations.
