By Matt Smith

Cough syrup

‚ÄčTraditional cough mixtures are formulated around a syrup at 60 - 75% concentration which is made from sucrose, maltodextrin, glucose, invert syrup, etc. The remainder is made up of thickening agents, stabilizers and active ingredients.

A high shear mixer allows the sugars and active ingredients to be dissolved at ambient temperatures to avoid problems.
