Starch 1500 is particularly effective with moisture sensitive actives and low dose applications. In addition to providing a unique range of functions and flexible performance in a variety of applications, Starch 1500 cuts process and material costs by reducing or eliminating polymeric binders, superdisintegrants, high levels of lubricants and glidants and manufacturing steps.
