Description: PEG is used as an excipient in many pharmaceutical products. Lower-molecular-weight variants are used as solvents in oral liquids and soft capsules, whereas solid variants are used as ointment bases, tablet binders, film coatings, and lubricants.
The most common coatings are wax coverings for fruits, lipid films to protect meat products and chocolate coating for a range of food items.
Edible films may be cellulose ether’s, starch, hydroxypropylated starch, corn zein, wheat gluten, soy protein and milk proteins.
