Versatile and High-Performance Excipients

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


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:

Main Applications

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

Extra White Sugar (EU 1)

Pharma-grade extra white sugar (EU 1) is an extra refined sugar, produced according to pharmaceutical standards.

It is a single ingredient foodstuff that consists of colourless, pure, free flowing crystals of sucrose, which have a white appearance. If you want to get more details about extra white sugar, please click here.
