Lactochem® Fine Powder

Pharmatose® and Lactochem® are DFE Pharma’s brand names for pure white and highly consistent crystalline, milled lactose monohydrate grades. Lactose is mechanically milled to varying degrees of particle sizes allowing pharmaceutical companies to choose the grade best fitting their formulation needs. Due to its fine nature and relatively high surface area, milled lactose compacts well. This lactose type is typically used in tablets, capsules and extrusion spheronisation.
