Roquette GLUCOSE SYRUPS provide excipient benefits as a humectant and vehicle while also providing nutrient benefits as a bulk sweetener. These materials are cereal sugars created from starch hydrolysis. The hydrolysis of starch polymers generates soluble glucose syrups of increasing sweetness. With careful control, hydrolysis can generate a large variety of carbohydrate profiles.
The range of products is a viscous clear colorless liquid with a sweet taste dependent on Dextrose Equivalent (D.E.) that includes the following:
- Low hydrolysis syrups (D.E. < 44)
- High hydrolysis syrups (D.E. > 44)
- High maltose syrup (about 50 % dry substance
GLUCOSE SYRUPS can be used in various oral dosage forms in both pharmaceutical and nutraceutical applications including blends, granules, pellets premix, medicated confectionaries, syrups, suspensions and liquids.
