Traditionally it has been very difficult to quantify and compare suppository texture between products because of differences in product sizes, geometries, packaging and layering behaviors. Suppository texture is important for (i) optimized comfort or breakage prevention during insertion and (ii) minimized negative consumer perception when the texture is soft and mushy or too hard. We have developed a test method using the TA.XT2i Texture Analyzer that allows accurate comparisons to be made across a wide variety of suppository types.
