Pastilles are a proven form of pharmaceutical dosage whose roots go back as far as the Middle Ages. The first available ready-to-use pharmaceuticals in Germany were offered in pastille form. Pastilles are single-dose solutions which are poured and dried. They dissolve in the mouth and throat and create an intense taste experience.
What is so special about pastilles?
- Pastilles are poured (tablets are pressed). The pastille, as a dosage form, allows trouble-free and careful processing of substances which, in many cases, cannot be used when manufacturing tablets or hard sweets.
- Soluble and insoluble substances can be processed in pastilles.
- The consistency of the pastilles can be adapted to the product conception (pastilles which can be sucked or chewed).
- Pastilles have an aromatic taste that underlines the uniqueness of the preparation.
- Pastilles are well-suited to self-medication and over-the-counter (OTC) products.
