Dry from dominated the Nutraceutical Excipients Market
The Nutraceutical Excipients market has been segmented on the basis of form into dry and liquid. Nutraceutical products require proper mixing of active nutraceutical ingredients and inactive ingredients such as excipients to ensure accurate distribution in the formulation. The major forms of nutraceutical excipients considered in the report are dry and liquid forms. Powder flowability is among the important determining factors responsible for influencing the optimal performance of an excipient. Excellent flow-ability of the excipient powder is an essential characteristic required for it to function as a filler, diluent, or a binder in nutraceutical products such as in orally dissolving tablet (ODT). The taste masking capabilities of an excipient in the form of powder also have significant effects on the acceptability of the end product, as an active nutraceutical ingredient often possesses an undesirable taste.
