Amylomaize and Waxy Maize Starch provide excipient benefits as a disintegrant and filler or binder, as well as nutrient benefits when used as a carbohydrate source. These benefits are provided to both pharmaceutical and nutraceutical product forms. These include swallowable tablets; hard capsules; and blends, granules, pellets premix.
These starches have a specific amylose amylopectin ratio that provides them a different behavior compared to other maize starches (digestibility, viscosity, gellation properties, etc.) while offering the same stability.
