Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs)

Active Ingredients or Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) are ingredients used in making pharmaceutical drugs. APIs represent the active substance in the drug responsible for effecting change or causing a function to occur.

Active ingredients are used in conjunction with inactive ingredients also called vehicles or excipients, whose only function is to transport the active ingredient to its site of action.


Areas of application:

  • Pharmaceutical industry – medicinal drug manufacturing.

Dextrous Anhydrous

Dextrose anhydrous is used to produce glucose injection, glucose sodium chloride injection, compound sodium lactic glucose injection, etc. As nutrition base dextrose anhydrous is the main material of fermention medium for antibiotic, MSG, vitamin, amino acid, organic acid and enzyme. It is also used raw material of microbial polysaccharide and organic solvent.

Dextrose or glucose is the smallest building unit, or monomer, of the starch chain of polymers. It is the form of sugar that is generally present in the body. In crystalline form dextrose has multiple uses, as filler for oral dosage or as a sweetener to render other severe tasting medicines edible.

Dextrose also functions as a texturiser, owing to its crystalline structure and properties well-suited for filling purposes. Anhydrous implies the state of being devoid of water. In this state, dextrose readily dissolves in water and most liquid media, increasing the body’s absorptive ability of this sugar.

Characteristics of dextrose include high clarity, solubility and sweetness. It’s solubility and energy conversion are responsible for its use in treating hypoglycaemia (low body sugar levels).

Areas of application:

  • Pharmaceutical industry – treatment of hypoglycaemia, hyponatraemia and hyperkalaemia, also used in fillers, sweeteners.

  • Food industry – texturisers, sweetners.


  • Sweetness

  • High solubility

  • Texturizer

Sodium Citrate

In the pharmaceutical industry Sodium citrate is used to control pH. It may be used as an alkalizing agent, buffering agent, emulsifier or as a sequestering agent.

Sodium citrate is a sodium salt of citric acid occurring in three possible forms – monosodium citrate, disodium citrate and trisodium citrate. The most common occurrence is in the third form, as trisodium citrate.

The most popular uses of sodium citrates are its applications as emulsifier, calcium sequestrant, acidity regulator and preservative, each of which is useful to the pharmaceutical industry.

The food industry also extensively uses Sodium citrate for gelation, emulsification, and acidity regulation in processes like cheese ripening.

The chemical industry employs sodium citrate as a buffer to maintain pH.

Areas of application:

  • Pharmaceutical industry: emulsifiers, acidity regulators.

  • Food industry: gelation agents, emulsifiers, acidity regulators.

  • Chemical industry: buffers.


  • Acidic

  • Chemical buffer

  • Emulsifier

Fundamentally, a vitamin is an organic chemical compound. Vitamins are essential for certain body processes. While some vitamins are synthesized within the body, others need to be consumed (via diet or supplements) to maintain regular functioning of the body.

In case of deficiencies of any of the vitamins, pharmaceutical supplements are used to prevent development of deficiency disorders, This is the most popular industrial application of vitamins.

Areas of application:

  • Pharmaceutical industry – supplements.


  • Nutrition supplements
