Co-Processed Multifunctional Excipients in Tableting

PDF 5.0 MB

The global dietary supplement industry is experiencing unprecedented growth in product development from existing players as well as new entrants. To gain a competitive edge, many supplement makers formulate with multiple ingredients, including minerals, amino acids, herbals, and vitamins in a single tablet. Doing so allows these companies to position their products with additional benefits compared to other delivery systems in the same category. However, multi-ingredient formulations also create marketing and operational challenges for manufacturers.

A trend dominating the supplement market is the clean label movement. This trend is increasing pressure on manufacturers to simplify labels by reducing the number of ingredients. Additionally, consumers desire smaller, easier-to-swallow tablets for children and senior citizens.

To meet these consumer trends, dietary supplement manufacturers should consider CPMEs as a key solution.

In this paper you will learn:

  • What CPMEs are

  • Advantages of CPMEs

  • How CPMEs enable manufacturers to reduce ingredients

  • Why CPMEs deliver more in a smaller pill

  • Comparison of Innophos CPMEs vs. conventional excipients
