  • Trehalose is a non-reducing disaccharide consisting of two glucose molecules linked by an α,α‒1,1 bond.
  • White dihydrous crystalline powder
  • Very soluble in water and heat/resistant
  • TREHALOSE 100PH is highly purified trehalose for pharmaceutical use

PRODUCT is MADE IN JAPAN

Applications

  • Additive for oral solutions (Ex: stabilizer, taste masking, solubility enhancer for minerals)
  • Excipient for solid oral dosage form

Product Specification

Purity: Not less than 99.0 %

Regulatory Status:

  • Ph. EUR
  • USP-NF
  • JP
  • Halal

Properties

  • Trehalose is 38% as sweet as a 5% solution of sucrose, with less aftertaste and an overall “clean” taste profile.
  • Trehalose is a non-reducing saccharide, which when heated does not caramelize or participate in Maillard reactions. These properties make trehalose advantageous when processing and heat-sterilization are required.
  • Trehalose remains exceptionally stable in the presence of heat and acid. Trehalose can tolerate a pH of 2 at 100̊C for 24 hours.
  • Due to its low hygroscopicity, trehalose remains free flowing at high relative humidity.
  • The glass-transition temperature (Tg) of trehalose is approximately 120̊C, which is higher among disaccharides. Consequently, trehalose maintains a stable glass state at higher temperatures.
