Cleantaste™ Technology

CleantasteCleantaste™ is a proprietary Mayne Pharma microencapsulation technology that can;

  • provide taste masking of unpalatable drugs
  • improve pharmaceutical stability and/ or 
  • sustain the release of drugs.

Cleantaste™ generates microcapsules with a fine particle size (25-150μm diameter), that are small enough to be non-gritty in the mouth. This allows for a superior mouth feel compared to other microencapsulation technologies and enables incorporation into oral disintegrating, chewable and/or dispersible tablets, sachets and liquid formulations as well as hard and soft gelatine capsules.

Some 20% of the population have difficulty swallowing conventional solid oral dose forms (particularly children and the elderly). Cleantaste™ provides the opportunity to meet the needs of this market segment with formulations that are pleasant tasting and easy to swallow.
