XANTURAL® Xanthan Gum
The XANTURAL® xanthan gum range has been designed to meet the specific needs of the pharmaceutical industry.
XANTURAL line of xanthan gum stabilizes suspensions of a variety of insoluble materials, such as: barium sulfate (for x-ray diagnoses), complexed dextromethorphan (for cough preparations), and thiabendazole. Other benefits are cling to vertical surfaces (for dentifrice products) and ease of swallowing (for syrups and dysphasia applications). XANTURAL xanthan gum is playing an increasingly important role in pharmaceutical controlled release applications, where erosion of the tablet is the primary mechanism of release.
All XANTURAL products are manufactured according to bulk pharmaceutical excipient guidelines published by the International Pharmaceutical Excipients Council (IPEC) and are certified to meet the requirements specified in the USP/NF, European Pharmacopoeia, and Japanese Pharmaceutical Excipient monographs.
