Oral Disintegrating Tablets

 
 
 

Easy-to-swallow, immediate-release solution

 
 
 

In the U.S. alone, 15 million adults have been diagnosed with dysphagia, or difficulty swallowing, including 22% of American seniors. Those who suffer from this condition look for smaller bites and softer textures in their foods to make it easier to chew and swallow. And that’s no different for choosing dietary supplements. Conventional tablets and capsules are often unviable options for these consumers, limiting their dosage form choices to ones like oral disintegrating tablets (ODTs).

This easy-to-swallow solid oral dosage form can be conveniently taken by all consumers who seek an on-the-go, no water required option that easily fits into their busy lives and accommodates existing conditions. For supplement manufacturers, ODTs are a cost-effective way to meet this growing demand for patient-friendly dietary supplements. These tablets will instantaneously begin disintegrating when consumed and immediately release the nutritional ingredient. Since quick-dissolving ODTs start working as soon as they touch a consumers’ tongue, taste masking is highly recommended to create a positive experience with superior flavor, mouthfeel and minimal aftertaste.

Luckily, DuPont is here to help you through every step of the ODT formulation process. Whether you are looking for coatings to mask the bitter taste associated with herbal and natural ingredients or delivering nutritional ingredients more efficiently, we have a solution that can help. Our robust portfolio of dietary supplement ingredients is packed with plant-based, non-GMO and ‘clean-label’ choices to fuel your product quality and delivery. Consider our team of global experts your right-hand team.
