Pregelatinized maize Starch

Starches are typically derived from corn or potato. Starches are used in the pharmaceutical industry for a wide variety of reasons, such as an excipient, a tablet and capsule diluent, a tablet and capsule disintegrant, a glidant, or as binder.

Disintegrants enable tablets and capsules to break down into smaller fragments (dissolve) so that the drug can be released for absorption Starches also absorb water rapidly, allowing tablets to disintegrate appropriately.
