Pharmaceutical Agar

Agar-agar is a polysaccharide obtained from marine seaweed of the class Rhodophyceae, by an extraction  process that results  in a fine and homogeneous powder.

Due to its gel strength and microbial flora absence, this ingredient is used in the pharmaceutical industry as gelling, stabilizer and thickener agent. Stable and inert, this polysaccharide is water soluble, and it produces reversible gels useful for pharmaceutical products formulation.

Pharmaceutical Agar is used in the pharmaceutical industry for many applications such as suspending agent for Barium Sulphate Radiology, intestine regulation, surgical lubricants and in preparations of emulsions, suspensions, capsules, etc.
