Innophos studies show: Clear advantages of co-processed multifunctional excipients

CPMEs enhance compressibility, simplify labels, improve manufacturing efficiency and result in a smaller tablet size

Innophos, a leading international producer of excipients for the Pharma and Dietary Supplement industries, shares latest studies—comparing their co-processed, multifunctional excipients to conventional excipients—during a webinar titled Novel Excipients at CPhI Worldwide today. The studies show that by using A-TAB® MD, manufacturers can reduce tablet ingredients by 50%, increase tablet hardness by 50%, reduce processing time by 50%, and reduce overall weight and tablet size by over 30% when compared to the same tablet made with conventional excipients.

Innophos scientist, Vinit Nigudkar, explains, “CPMEs are a key solution for creating smaller, label-friendly tablets for consumers while simplifying formulations and improving operational challenges for manufacturers—leading to faster speed to market.” He continues, “CPMEs replace the functionality of a diluent, binder, and flow agent, and also are an excellent source of calcium and phosphorus, making them a very attractive multifunctional solution for dietary supplement manufacturers.”

Innophos has highlighted these studies in their whitepaper titled “Co-Processed Multifunctional Excipients in Tableting”. Download the complimentary white paper here to learn more.
