Description

Sodium Starch Glycolate (SSG) is derived from potato. It is also known as Carboxymethyl Ether Sodium Salt. It is used as a pharmaceutical grade dissolution excipient for tablets and capsules. Sodium Starch Glycolate absorbs water rapidly, resulting in swelling which leads to rapid disintegration of tablets and granules. It is used as a disintegrant, a suspending agent and as a gelling agent.
