  • Yield, Creep And Recovery - Why Are They Important?
    Yield, Creep And Recovery - Why Are They Important?

    Material flow behavior may include the phenomenon called “creep” which applies to various liquids and semi-solids, like gels and lotions that continue to move slightly even after placement on the skin. R&D’s intent when formulating the substance is to minimize movement because the medicinal effect is best accomplished by keeping the material in the original position where it is applied.

    Dry Granulation And Its Application In Dietary Supplements Manufacturing

    The dietary supplement label contains information about the product, like its intended use, direction for use, safety information, and, in addition, it fully, clearly and accurately discloses each ingredient contained in the supplement. Therefore, it should be of importance for consumers to judge the quality of the dietary supplement but based on the label it is difficult to determine the performance, benefits and features like containing the proper amount of ingredients in such a way that their absorption and corresponding efficacy are guaranteed. The grade of quality depends on the production process, which involves the quality control of the manufacturer, the suppliers and other involved parties. By Martin Purpura
