Glass Transition of Lactose

The glass transition of lactose is in direct relation with the stickiness and the flowability of powders containing it. This in turn influences the processing.

Lactose is found in the milk of mammalians. It is frequently used in food technology or as an excipient in pharmaceutical products. Knowledge of the thermal properties of lactose is essential because its glass transition is in direct relation with the physical properties – such as stickiness and flowability – of powders containing it, and this, in turn, influences processing. A Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC) determines the glass transition temperature of spray-dried α-lactose monohydrate. Please click here to get more information.
