Directly compressible starch as enhancer of properties of excipients when used as binder and disintegrant for compression tablets



Directly compressible starch as enhancer of properties of excipients when used as binder and disintegrant for compression tablets



Official Gazette of the United States Patent and Trademark Office Patents 1262(4)



The present invention relates to a mixture of a starch and at least one other excipient for tabletting wherein the starch is free-flowing compressible processed starch powder suitable for use both as a binder and as a disintegrant in tablets. The free-flowing starch powder improves the characteristics and the properties of the tablets when mixed with one or more different excipients. The present invention also discloses a method for obtaining tablets comprising the free-flowing compressible processed starch together with at least one excipient and the tablets obtained by such a method.
