ProTab Laboratories (Foothill Ranch, CA) introduced its newly developed and proprietary Qk-MeltTech technology for the manufacture of quick-melt tablets that dissolve rapidly in the mouth, as quickly as 45 seconds, without the need of water.
ProTab’s new technology offers an excellent alternative to consumers who experience difficulty swallowing traditional tablets with or without water, reported the company, adding dysphagia (difficulty in swallowing) affects about 35 percent of the general population and is common among all age groups with a higher percentage found among older consumers.
Randy Pollan, vice president of sales, ProTab, said the availability of quick-dissolve tablets offers our customers excellent new options for their product line and offers consumers a wonderful alternative to traditional tablets. “The company’s new technology ensures excellent friability of the tablets, making it easier for the tablet to break into smaller pieces very quickly ensuring quick dissolution,” said Pollan.
Qk-MeltTech technology requires, among other things, excellent flavors to ensure excellent taste and a pleasant experience for the consumer, reported the company, noting ProTab offers its customers access to an extensive flavor library, full technical support with custom formulation and flavor solutions for their products.
“We want customers to know that we are truly committed to innovation and using advanced technologies in order to deliver the highest quality products available in today’s nutritional industry,” said Pollan.
