Taste Masking 101: Optimize Taste And Improve Patient Outcomes


Unpleasant taste is the biggest barrier for completing treatment in pediatrics and 30% to 40% of parents had children who rejected or refused a pill or liquid medication. 26% of geriatric patients reported difficulty swallowing tablets and capsules. By applying a taste masking application, patient compliance can increase 53% to 90%.

The correlation between taste masking and understanding the impact to patient adherence is critical for any successful treatment plan. In this 4-part webinar series, we will discuss: the challenges within the industry such as swallowability and palatability related to patient acceptability for oral drug formulations; Regulatory and critical insights for developing a taste masked therapeutic, and an overview of taste masking strategies and techniques. In future segments of the series, innovations regarding sensory and performance evaluations will be discussed.

In the first webinar of this series, learn how swallowability and palatability play key factors related to patient acceptability and product development. Learn about the variety of taste masking strategies including excipients, organoleptic and barrier coating approaches, and microencapsulation technologies. Learn how these applications optimize product development and can improve patient adherence, and ultimately can improve patient outcomes.
