Certifications, Regulatory, Quality & Safety

Reliability at All Time

Our excipients for pharmaceutical and life science industries are produced in 4 different facilities in Germany and France. If you need any pharma certifications of our sugars for your formulations, we are more than happy to provide you with them.

Furthermore Südzucker offers perfect traceability from production until delivery, has a global commercial presence and cross-border supply

Certifications

A certificate of conformity to the European Pharmacopoeia (EP/PhEur) is enclosed to each delivery.

Our sucrose-based excipients are in compliance with the requirements of the sucrose monograph of EP/PhEur (excluding endotoxins) thanks to regular analysis performed during the production periods according to the methods of the sucrose monograph in force.

If requested we also offer EP/PhEur certificates for our products. USP-NF certification (United States Pharmacopeia National Formula) are offered on request for some products or used raw materials. Special customer-specific certificates are available on request.

If you need further advise or have questions concerning our certifications, please contact us.

Versatile and High-Performance Excipients

Versatile and High-Performance Excipients

Südzucker offers you a broad range of versatile and high-performing pharma-grade excipients:

COMPRI

The COMPRI range by Südzucker is a product selection of directly compressible sucrose with special properties. The source material is very fine grinded sucrose (EU I quality), with or without binder, as well as other ingredients (flavourings or active ingredients, pressing agent, dyes, etc.).

Due to our unique fluid bed agglomeration production technology for COMPRI, we provide you with high quality, sucrose-based solutions, designed to be processed into compressed goods, tablets and instant products. Südzucker is the only producer who offers a fluid bed agglomerated sugar for direct compression without any binder.

Under the umbrella of COMPRI, you can select between the following products:

With the different types in our COMPRI range, you can select the best solution for your product. The individual types differ in their ingredients and particle size distribution.

The unique agglomeration manner ensures, that Südzucker COMPRI has completely different physico-chemical properties and structure compared to regular sugar crystals. Even though the main component is sucrose, its amorphous form entails many benefits:

  • Directly compressible
  • Excellent flow characteristics
  • Optimal binder for active substances (liquid or in powdered form)
  • Low friability
  • Outstanding dissolution properties
  • Can be dosed with high precision
  • Very good compression force/breaking load characteristics
  • Ensuring ease of processing on modern high-speed presses
  • Masking agent effect
  • Storage stability / low hygroscopicity
  • Instant solubility
  • Nearly dust-free
  • Defined particle size distribution

Organic Beet Sugar

Organic beet sugar

The production of organic beet sugar comes as no surprise. Organic products have become increasingly important for end consumers over the past years. One reason for this is that they associate “organic” with “regional”, as well as social and environmental responsibility. “Organic is good for me and it is good for my environment.” This is also reflected in the growing number of new product introductions (NPI). Already, almost 20% of new products launched are of organic quality.

Close to our farmers

We also think organic products go hand in hand with regional, as well as social and ecological responsibility. Therefore, we have been working for almost 20 years with the local farmers in Germany to produce bio-based sweetening solutions. This resulted in our organic beet sugar.

Two farmers discussing organic beet sugar production
Organic beet sugar production region

Südzucker was one of the first European sugar producers to produce organic beet sugar. Our production place in Rain/Bavaria in Southern Germany is in close proximity to our farmers. Over 90% of our beets are grown in a perimeter of approximately 150km around our factory (crop year 2019).

In Rain, we process carefully grown organic sugar beets to the highest European quality for organic beet sugar.

Our organic beets are mainly grown in one of the biggest crop areas for organic beets in Europe – Bavaria.

Südzucker organic sugar quality principles:

  • Close and long cooperation with our German farmers
  • Short transportation ways lead to low CO2 emissions
  • Secure & reliable raw material availability
  • Regional raw material sourcing
  • Highest product quality standards and quality control

Close to you

We are looking at the markets and consumers on a regular basis to be prepared for the future needs of our customers.

That is also why we are offering, beside the classical EU organic label, Naturland (since 2014) and BioSuisse certified organic beet sugar.
