Solving the Challenges of Effervescent Systems

Effervescent delivery systems made with traditional sodium bicarbonate can be difficult to formulate and manufacture because exposure to even minute amounts of moisture and/or acid can cause premature effervescence's. SPI Pharma has developed a unique technology to overcome these issues with our Effer-Soda® product, which offers the following benefits:

  • Improves finished product stability by eliminating early effervescent reaction
  • Provides rapid effervescence when desired in the presence of large amounts of water
  • Reduces need for humidity-controlled manufacturing environment
  • Reduces manufacturing steps by eliminating the need to pre-dry effervescent powder
  • Manufactured in a pharmaceutical-dedicated facility under cGMP guidelines
