EMDEX® is a directly compressible, 100% water soluble, and lactose-free tablet binder. It is composed of a unique combination of glucose monohydrate and different polysaccharides derived from starch. When used in direct compression, EMDEX® shows superior flow, compaction, and tablet robustness. EMDEX® has a sweet taste, but is not as sweet as sucrose, making it ideal for semi-sweet formulations.

EMDEX® was designed for a wide variety of applications including: chewable tablets, ingestible tablets, dispersible tablets, effervescent tablets, and soluble tablets. It is also commonly used in veterinary applications.

EMDEX® is available GMO-free.
