Taste Masking of Bitter Drugs

Our highly skilled team can partner with you for taste optimisation of pharmaceutical products and supplements, consulting and communicating with you in order to meet specific requirements for your product. You can take advantage of our taste optimisation services in isolation, or as part of longer-term pharmaceutical product development project; our cross-laboratory, joined-up approach means you can outsource multiple areas to us. Do this and you gain the additional benefit of a single RSSL project manager keeping track, ensuring effective knowledge sharing and ensuring you are fully informed.

As part of our taste optimisation service, we provide specialist insight into techniques for bitterness masking, sweetener optimisation and texture development. We also advise on cost reduction, and how to obtain desired effects in the most cost-effective and efficient manner possible. We work with pharmaceuticals (OTC), dietary supplements and herbal products in a variety of dose formats, and call on expertise in physical sciences, microscopy and functional ingredients where necessary to provide you with the best possible service.

We have experience working with a range of dose formats, including:-

  • Powders
