Sodium Starch Glycolate (SSG) Stargel TM

StargelTM is the sodium salt of carboxymethyl ether. It is a white to off white, tasteless, odorless, free flowing powder. The degree of cross linking and degree of substitution of have been optimized in order to give rapid water uptake by the polymer without the formation of a viscous gel that may impede water penetration into the tablet.

Starch glycolates are of rice, potato, wheat or corn origin. Potato is the preferred type of starch for sodium starch glycolate.
