The binding performance of starch

Starch and starch derivatives are widely used excipients in the pharmaceutical industry and are frequently used in oral solid dosage forms such as tablets, capsules or sachets. Our in-house knowledge of starch enables us to provide high-level support and innovative solutions to specific customer challenges.

Our production process and your pharmaceutical end product are important factors that determine the appropriate type of starch to be used in the formulation. For many years numerous pharmaceutical companies have successfully formulated their solid oral dosage forms using our pregelatinised and native starch products.
