Cleantaste™ is a novel 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.
