Agar is used as an ingredient in tablets and capsules, as well as in different types of emulsions. The main role of agar in the pharmaceutical industry is as an excipient. It is an effective carrier of the active ingredient enabling the active to reach its target area successfully, but without reacting with it.
Iberagar’s Pharmaceutical Agar is compliant with this requirement due to its sourcing from the best raw materials, and to demanding extraction procedures that guarantee the removal of potential impurities. Iberagar has been supplying Pharmaceutical Agar to the world’s leading companies for many years.
