Klear Gummy™ Anhydrous Gelatin Base w/Bitter-Bloc Technology
Klear Gummy™ is an excellent option for troches, gummies, and chew type prescriptions allowing for easy compounding of water-unstable APIs, or where stability of a drug is unknown. Simply heat the gummy base, mix in other ingredients, pour into molds, and cool. Klear Gummy™ is a semi-transparent, mild to no taste or smell, anhydrous gelatin gummy base derived from naturally sourced ingredients. This base has a relatively low working temperature when heated to form a pourable solution that forms a stable gelatin matrix when cooled. Excellent API load capacity. Compatible with SpecializedRx water soluble and oil soluble SRx flavors. Klear Gummy™ can be easily sweetened and flavored to preference.
Klear Gummy™ gives pharmacists the convenience of a ready-to-use anhydrous gummy base allowing for an extended beyond-use dating (BUD) stability profile per USP <795>. Klear Gummy™ Anhydrous Base is dye, gluten, sugar, PEG, paraben-free, and contains our Bitter-Bloc™ Technology for optimal palatability.
This Base has a slight translucent amber appearance and is ready for the addition of actives, sweetener, and preferred flavors.

What is Bitter-Bloc™ Technology?
Other products on the market simply mask flavor defects, Bitter-Bloc™ actually blocks flavor defects from reaching taste receptors on the tongue to prevent the bitter molecules from binding with the receptor sites. In effect, it gives the product a cleaner taste. This allows formulators to use ingredients that meet consumer demand without compromising on taste. Works to eliminate bitter, salty, metallic, astringent, and general off-notes in a variety of oral formulations.

Is Bitter-Bloc™ a sweetness modulator? Bitter-Bloc™ is not a sweetness modulator as it does not affect sweetness. However, in some cases tasters will notice an enhanced flavor profile. Since bitterness is a strong flavor, it often will overpower the other flavors present. Bitter-Bloc™ will bring down the bitterness perception to the point that other flavors are now able to be perceived.
