An optimized production process for ideal disintegration properties

To maximize the surface exposed to water, potato starch is the preferred raw material for GLYCOLYS®, as its granules are relatively large. To avoid viscosity development during disintegration process which would delay drug dissolution, cross-linking is performed on the potato starch. For maximum speed of disintegration, starch’s ability to swell is significantly increased by rendering it more hydrophilic through carboxymethylation. For a maximum purity in the GLYCOLYS® products, neutralization and washing is performed.

GLYCOLYS® is a reference multipurpose superdisintegrant, well-known and widely used in the pharmaceutical industry.
