Which grade of microcrystalline cellulose is best?
Microcrystalline cellulose 102 is the most commonly used form of the product due the best combination of physical properties. Higher-density grades have improved flowability. The larger-particle-size grades generally provide better flow properties in pharmaceutical machinery. Low-moisture grades are used with moisture-sensitive materials. Several co-processed mixtures of microcrystalline cellulose with other excipients such as magnesium stearate, carboxymethylcellulose sodium, and guar gum are available for specific applications.
Is mannitol Vegan?
Yes Mannitol is suitable for Vegans as it is made from plant starch
What are the uses of Mannitol Powder?
Mannitol is used in foods, medicine, cosmetics and bio medical research.
How is mannitol Made?
D-mannitol was originally obtained industrially by an extraction process. Whereas, since the beginning, Roquette has developed a manufacture process of mannitol based upon starch, natural raw material of vegetable origin. Starch is transformed into a glucose mannose solution which gives mannitol through catalytic hydrogenation according to the following reaction
Is mannitol safe?
Yes mannitol has been approved by most countries as being safe.
Does Mannitol affect blood sugar?
It has a minor impact on blood sugar levels as only a small part of the ingested mannitol is partially absorbed and metabolised.
How is Mannitol used in tableting?
PEARLITOL mannitol granular powders give good hardness results under industrial compression conditions. These results demonstrate that PEARLITOL mannitol granular powders are effective fillers and binders for DC applications. Some of the physical properties that make this great for DC are Excellent free flowing, Good compactibility with low friability, No sensitivity to tableting speed, No lubricant sensitivity, Good dilution potential.
What is the dosage of mannitol
Mannitol dose is set at a maximum advised limit of 20 grams per day. If being used for medical reasons or intravenously this should be discussed with your doctor
