Solani Amylum: Native potato starch Native potato starch Solani Amylum is a purified potato starch in the form of a white and free flowing powder. Solani Amylum complies with USP-NF, Ph. Eur., JP. monographs for potato starch. Solani Amylum is a valuable excipient used as a filler for hard gelatin capsule formulations often in a blend with partly pregelatinised starch. In this application the necessary cohesiveness for plug formation at light tamping forces together with plug dispersion and drug release is readily achieved. Solani Amylum is also used as a disintegrant in tablets at levels of about 5% to 20%. When cooked up to a paste, Solani Amylum can be used as a binder in wet granulation applications.
