Sugar-based Excipients are inert components that are utilised in formulations to support active medicinal compounds. Numerous forms of sugars, particularly sucrose, are used extensively in the pharmaceutical industry because it is affordable, simple to produce, bulking, and a good-tasting carrier ingredient. Excipients are helpful when it comes to flowability, in vitro stability, and many other aspects of the manufacturing process.
Sugar-based Excipients come in a variety of forms, including diluents, sweeteners, adhesion inhibitors, thickening agents, colouring agents, etc. The excipient most frequently utilised in oral formulations is sugar. Excipients, which are often inactive ingredients, support the active ingredient of a pharmaceutical used for oral administration. Examples of excipients include sucrose, glycerol, saccharin sodium, sorbitol, and others. Excipients made of sugar are used to bulk up solid formulations and give them long-lasting stability.
