Roquette provides gluten-free excipient alternative

Wheat-free excipient is the gluten-free version of PEARLITOL SD that has been employed commercially in chewable and oral disintegrating tablets

Roquette has launched a wheat-free nutraceutical excipient product enabling a gluten-free claim to respond to consumer demands.

The new wheat-free mannitol grade for direct compression is now available with similar direct compression tabletting properties to complement the existing PEARLITOL SD mannitol grades. This has enabled high productivity direct compression tabletting, a key manufacturing process for nutraceutical supplement companies.

The new addition is called PEARLITOL SW-F, developed through a secure supply chain & manufacturing process controls, enabling in-demand consumer claim of gluten-free. The product is additionally tooth-friendly (sugar-free) and non-GMO.

Roquette’s spray-dried PEARLITOL SD mannitol grades, particularly 200SD, have long been considered a leading direct compression functional filler/diluent for oral dosage nutraceutical, OTC and prescription products. This multifunctional excipient has commercially been employed in chewable and oral disintegrating tablets (ODT’s), including many vitamin supplements on the market today, among other customised oral dosage forms and actives.

With excellent powder flow and compressibility performance, there are a number of benefits to PEARLITOL SD grades, including for their inherent non-hygroscopic property that enhances active stability and a pleasing cool taste.
