Many pharmaceutically active compounds have a bitter or otherwise objectionable taste which may decrease patient compliance.  Tastemasking is the art of hiding these bad tastes from patients to improve compliance.  It improves drug palatability without affecting the drug release profile.  In this application, FMC’s Aquacoat® ECD provides:

  • Increased drug palatability
  • Little impact on drug release rate
