galenIQ™ (isomalt) makes medicine taste better!

galenIQ™ (Isomalt) improves taste and mouthfeel in probiotic and pediatric medicine.

Improve the palatability of solid and liquid medicine with BENEO's galenIQ™  - the sweet filler-binder that helps the medicine to be swallowed more easily. galenIQ™  is the pharmaceutical grade of Isomalt and it is available in different grades, fitting a wide range of applications, from mini-tablets, lozenges, chewable tablets, sachets to effervescent and syrup.

galenIQ™ (Isomalt), water activity and probiotics stability

Water activity is one of the factors, which may affect the stability of probiotics. Isomalt (galenIQ™ 721), is non-hygroscopic and it does not release a significant water quantity through desorption. Therefore galenIQ™ is a suitable excipient in a well-designed carrier system for probiotic supplement formulations.
