Summary

Taste masking is an important factor in the development of dosage forms containing active pharmaceutical ingredients with unacceptable taste. Film coating has been found as the most effective and commonly used approach for taste masking. Depending on the taste masking technology, shell material should be selected from a wide variety of water soluble or insoluble polymers. The present article provides an overview of the commonly used polymers and ready-to-use polymer mixtures employed for taste masking.
Keywords: taste masking, hypromellose, methyl cellulose, ethyl cellulose, methacrylate copolymers, ready-to-use polymer mixtures
