Klucel nutra™ modified cellulose is a nonionic water-soluble cellulose ether that enables robust tablets. Derived from cellulose, this directly compressible tablet binder, provides superior tablet hardness and low friability. The wood pulp used in our cellulose products is sourced from suppliers who have implemented zero deforestation business practices, adhering to standards set forth by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), by the Program for the Endorsement Certification (PEFC.), or both. 

oral care features and benefits:

  • exhibits plasticity and toughness
  • offers outstanding compressibility
  • creates tablet with high breaking force and low friability
  • reduces tablet defects to save costs through improving yields
  • enables smaller tablets, depending on formulation
  • ideal direct compression tablet manufacturing process 
  • vegan suitable

oral care applications:

  • tablets

oral care grades:

Selecting the grade of klucel nutra™ modified cellulose for oral care tablets will depend on the formulation and tablet process. There are 2 grades available that differ by particle size. A good starting point is the klucel nutra™ d modified cellulose.
