TACKIDEX® Potato dextrins provide a variety of benefits to the manufacturer and consumer as both an excipient and a nutrient. They are white to yellow powders obtained from maize, tapioca, and potato starch by heat treatment. These are ingredients for clinical nutrition and nutraceuticals. Dextrins are starch polymers derived through solid-state heating from partially hydrolysed starch. Dextrinization is a classical starch processing technology that makes partial or complete solubility possible. As an excipient, dextrins are a binder, filler, stabilizer,  suspending agent, and viscosifier. As a nutrient, it is a carbohydrate and fiber source. TACKIDEX® can be used in various oral dosage forms in both pharmaceutical and nutraceutical applications, including swallowable tablets, chewable tablets, effervescent tablets, lozenges, hard capsules, soft capsules, coatings, orally dissolving films, blends, granules, pellet premix, medicated confectionary, syrups, suspensions, and liquids.
