LFA’s Fructose DC ("directly compressible") is specifically designed to assist tableters to make high quality chewable mints, gums or sublingual tablets, and confectionery products similar to Sweetarts, breath mints (Polos/Life Savers), Pez or Tic Tacs.
LFA’s Fructose DC is one of the sweeter sugars that LFA offers in a DC grade. It is ideal for customers who are looking to mask bitter or unpleasant tastes.
LFA's Fructose DC will flow extremely well through your tablet press and into small die cavities as well. This allows you to run your tablet press at higher speeds, saving you time and money.
Simply add your flavoring, active ingredient and coloring, and the Fructose DC will act as the binder and flowing agent. It is important to note that depending on the active ingredient, you might need to add an anti-caking agent to the mix. If you have formulation questions then please do reach out to our team.
