BENEO GmbH, part of the Südzucker Group, offers galenIQTM (Isomalt), which is a water-soluble pharmaceutical excipient filler-binder, derived from sucrose.
In fact galenIQ™ also has a sweetness and taste profile that is very similar to sucrose and therefore galenIQ™ is frequently used to improve the palatability of bitter-tasting active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), plant extracts and probiotics. galenIQ™ is non-cariogenic and shows a low glycaemic index which makes it the optimal choice for the formulation of a broad variety of dosage forms, such as chewable tablets, compressed lozenges, oro-dispersible mini-tablets, effervescents, and cough syrups.
BENEO is a division of the Südzucker Group, that employs more than 1000 people and has production units in Belgium, Chile, Germany and Italy.
