In addition to food, pharmaceutical and dietary supplement products are essential and commonly available in the forms of tablets and dietary supplement capsules. For pharmaceutical manufacturing, it is necessary for excipient to function in various levels of requirements and be compatible with any active pharmaceutical ingredients (API). SMS offers multi-functional excipients to manufacture high-quality products at the best cost-effectiveness.  

Solid Dosage Form

SMS provides the multi-functional direct compressible excipient, DAVAMED™C1 made from partially pregelatinized corn starch in compliance with the USP/EP standard. DAVAMED™C1 is a free-flowing powder with excellent binding capacity and excellent disintegration. The cost-effective DAVAMED™C1 can be applied in place of the more costly microcrystalline cellulose (MCC).

In addition, SMS offers a wide range of specialized excipients for your choices of the solid dosage form. TAPIOPHARM™119, a white free-flowing partially pregelatinized tapioca starch, functions as a filler/binder and disintegrant in the direct compression process. The fully pregelatinized tapioca starch, TAPIOPHARM™SG is recommended as a filler/binder in tablet with control release effects. TAPIOPHARM™DP3, a tapioca maltodextrin, and TAPIOPHARM™DPL, a dried pea glucose syrup, function as binders for direct compression. They are completely soluble in cold water making them suitable for chewable tablets. The low moisture native tapioca starch products, TAPIOPHARM™LY are excellent fillers/disintegration for wet granulation.
