Cafosa has developed an innovative concept for the pharmaceutical industry: Health in Gum is an excipient – a directly compressible powder gum containing a mix of ingredients – to which you can add your APIs.
Health in Gum offers an innovative drug delivery system that benefits from all the advantages of chewing gum and also contributes to improving compliance. It has been created to simplify the manufacturing process of compressed chewing gum in a quick and cost effective way.
Health in Gum is directly compressible. It works at room temperature, which allows the use of thermo-sensitive APIs. It is also ideal for water-sensitive APIs.
Health in Gum is specially manufactured for use in-house in pharmaceutical facilities and does not require specific chewing gum production equipment. It performs excellently using standard tabletting equipment.
Health in Gum is produced according to cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practice) principles for pharmaceutical excipients.
It is important to note some of the advantages of chewing gum; the most significant one is that it improves oral health. Chewing sugar-free gum after eating is clinically proven to be an important part of good oral health. Moreover, chewing gum increases alertness and concentration, assists weight management and reduces stress.
Health in Gum: Innovating in oral drug delivery systems is that easy.
