PrismaLac® 40

PrismaLac® 40

Narrow classification of randomly sized lactose crystals results in coarse sieved grades, which show particle size and shape-dependent powder flow for increased production speeds. MEGGLE´s sieved alpha-lactose monohydrate grades are mainly monocrystals with some agglomerates, exceptionally suited to permit and optimize applications where powder flow is important.
