PEARLITOL® Flash is a mannitol compound that allies robustness with rapid disintegration. It offers the consumer a uniquely pleasing taste experience and makes tablet formulation surprisingly simple.

Roquette's ODT platform

Roquette has been involved in the development of new excipients for the formulation of ODT for more than 10 years now, initially with directly compressible mannitol (PEARLITOL® SD grade). The specific physico-chemical properties of mannitol – a combination of good solubility and some surface hydrophobicity – make it the ideal excipient in association with a superdisintegrant for the formulation of tablets that are robust yet that disintegrate very rapidly.

PEARLITOL® Flash developed by Roquette is a compound of mannitol and starch only, specifically developed for its unique disintegrative properties: once tabletted, it melts instantaneously in the mouth, transforming itself into a creamy, slightly sweet texture.
