Description

LYCATAB® C and C-LM partially pregelatinized starch is used as a filler for gelatin capsules and filler/binder for direct compression. LYCATAB® C and C-LM combines the disintegration power of starch granules with the high cohesion and good compressibility of pregelatinized starch.  Native starch is a common excipient for tablet and capsule manufacture. Due to its limited flow properties, native starch often requires the use of additional excipients and production steps such as granulation.  A simple physical modification of starch (a partial pregelatinization) helps overcome these difficulties and results in a multifunctional excipient.

LYCATAB® C and C-LM is used in oral dosage forms in both pharmaceutical and nutraceutical applications, mainly for swallowable tablets and hard capsules.  It is used as a filler/binder/disintegrant.
