It is used since a long time as excipient in pharmaceutical preparations. Native starches, however, are inherently unsuitable for most applications and; therefore, must be modified chemically and/or physically to enhance their positive attributes and/or to minimize their defects. Pregelatinized starch is a common type of physically modified starch with wide applications. This book sets as its main goal to prepare and study the physico-chemical properties of pregelatinized enset starch and to evaluate its potential as a binder and disintegrant in tablet formulation. The book is useful for professionals in pharmaceutical industries and academia.
