Co-Processed: Lactose starch

StarLac® Co-processed lactose starch is a filler/binder having strong disintegrant properties. It is a compound developed in collaboration with the Meggle company that is made from lactose and maize starch, which are co-processed. The co-processing offers superior benefit compared to a blend of lactose and starch, which allows you to improve the performance (hardness, friability, disintegration time) of your existing formulation. Specifically designed for direct compression applications, StarLac® is also an excellent filler/binder in dry granulation processes.

StarLac® can be used in various oral dosage forms in both pharmaceutical and nutraceutical applications including granules, swallowable tablets, orally dispersible tablets and hard capsules.

StarLac® is a product co-marketed by Meggle and Roquette.
