pharmaceutical/nutraceutical


starches

GPC pharmaceutical/nutraceutical starches range from basic unmodified starches for tableting to very specialized, innovative starches for unique applications.

Spress® Pregelatinized Corn Starch NF is GPC's answer to the need for a versatile, direct-compression tableting and wet-binding excipient. Spress® line of products provide free-flowing starches with excellent binding properties for tablets, capsules, dry blends and dry granulations and a low viscosity, ambient temperature binder for wet granulations. As a truly multifunctional product, Spress® starch performs as binder, disintegrant and lubricant in one excipient.

PURE-COTE® Modified Starch NF is corn starch that has been specially modified to produce clear, flexible films. In pharmaceutical products, this starch can be used as the primary or secondary film former in aqueous tablet coatings, softgel capsules, oral quick dissolve films or granulations. PURE-COTE® can provide an economical replacement for gums, gelatin or cellulosic polymers (i.e., HPMC).

INSTANT PURE-COTE® Pregelatinized Modified Starch NF is a cold-water soluble starch uniquely designed for film-forming applications and aqueous film coating. Finished coatings are water soluble, clear and have good sheen. INSTANT PURE-COTE® modified starch can be used in a wide variety of applications where film-forming properties are desired, such as for coatings, barriers, texture modification, binding or adhesives.

PURE-GEL® Modified Starches NF provide stable viscosity under extreme pH, heat and processing conditions. They are freeze-thaw stable and help stabilize emulsions. PURE-GEL® products are excellent thickeners for soft chews, gels or any formula that requires a smooth and stable thickener.

PURE-DENT® starches are high-quality, versatile corn starches. The PURE-DENT® line of pharmaceutical powdered starches has many functional properties including binding, disintegration, absorption, and bulking for pharmaceutical and nutraceutical applications including wet and dry granulation, tableting and body powders. GPC offers NF or USP starches for formulations.

GPC is an FDA-approved producer of absorbable dusting powder USP for use as a lubricant for surgical and examination gloves. PURE-DENT® is the trade name for these USP starches.
