Rheology of Thickeners for Pharmaceuticals: Xanthan
Viscosity-increasing ingredients such as xanthan are widely used in complex products such as pharmaceuticals, creams, health-care products, food ingredients and dietary supplements. Their use is regulated by standards, such as the Pharmacopoeia (e.g. United States Pharmacopoeia and the European Pharmacopeia).  Although the applications of these products are diverse, absolute and trustworthy rheological data are constantly required for the production and quality management of such products.
