Product Information

SorboLac® 400

SorboLac® 400 consist of fine, sharp-edged lactose particles, having cohesive powder properties that can be beneficial during granulation processes. Clean unlubricated surfaces created during the compaction process as a result of brittle fracture lead to improved compactability.

MEGGLEs milled alpha-lactose monohydrate grades have been historically used as diluents in dry and wet granulation processes by numerous global and regional pharmaceutical manufacturers.
