KLEPTOSE LINECAPS 17
Maltodextrin EP

Kleptose Linecaps is a maltodextrin obtained from pea starch rich in linear and soluble amylose. Amylose exists as helical structure bearing hydrophilic external surface due to the presence of hydroxyl groups and a hydrophobic internal cavity created by presence of glycosidic ether bonds. This cavity enables amylose to mask the bitter or unpleasant taste of drugs by decreasing the amount of drug exposed to taste buds.
