Taste Masking Technology

Precisely and uniformly coated individual drug particles deliver a smooth, pleasant mouthfeel, with no aftertaste. This improves product acceptability and patient adherence.

Taste masking and pore-former technology

How it works

Drug particles are coated using a combination of coacervation (phase separation) and spray coating to build polymeric membranes of varying porosity and thickness. The layers employ a gastro-soluble pore-former (organic, inorganic, or polymeric), which cannot be dissolved by saliva and blocks bitter drug taste. The pore-former rapidly dissolves in the stomach for fast drug release, enhancing the probability of achieving bioequivalence to an immediate release (IR) reference listed drug (RLD).
