Tapioca Starch For Pharmaceuticals

Pregelatinized starch is often used as a binding excipient, mixing excipient and disintegrating excipient in solid dosage forms such as tablets or capsules. 

Compared with starch, partially modified starch has better flowability and compressibility, and can be used as a dry adhesive excipient in direct stamping or dry rubbing. Besides, pregelatinized starch has self-lubricating properties, supporting stickiness when pressing tablets.
