Taste masking for solid and liquid oral dosage forms – our functional solutions
Taste masking is necessary when a drug administered orally has an unpleasant taste. Whether you are looking for taste masking in a solid or a liquid dosage form, BASF has a whole range of solutions at hand.
Active ingredients with unpleasant taste are a challenge for formulators. Many drugs being developed are bitter in taste, yet patients and consumers generally expect a pleasant administration experience, regardless of the medication. And on the generic side, there is significant competitive pressure to ensure that your product at least does not fall short in patient compliance, if pharmaceutical marketers want to compete successfully.
Masking unpleasant taste is key for both solid and liquid dosage forms. BASF offers taste masking solutions for both. And, depending on the bitterness of your drug and the target release profile, you can choose between moderate and maximum taste masking effect.
