LYCATAB® PGS is a natural pregelatinized maize starch that has been specially developed as a binder for wet granulation. This excipient is dispersible and partially soluble in cold water and ready for use. The properties of LYCATAB® PGS result from a combination of the natural binding properties of pregels starches and a controlled manufacturing process. The latter ensure this natural origin excipient of high stability reproducible binding properties during granulation and dissolution profile of actives in the final forms. LYCATAB® PGS can be used in granules and swallowable forms in both pharmaceutical and nutraceutical applications.
